LIGER LEADERSHIP ACADEMY
Liger Trading believes in creating impact that goes beyond the financial world.
Since 2010, Liger has been a proud supporter of the Liger Leadership Academy in Cambodia and looks forward to the opening of the Liger Discovery Club and Liger Leadership Academy in New Zealand in 2021 and 2022, respectively.
“Liger Leadership Academy not only encourages and develops entrepreneurial thinkers, but is, in itself, entrepreneurial, as we constantly look to improve or create new ways to achieve our goal. We have a holistic approach to education and are very focused on who our students are, not just what they know; because who you are determines what you do with what you know. At Liger, we focus on real-life experiences, connected as much as possible to the students’ country because in order to change your country, you must understand it.”
- Dominic Sharpe, Country Director, Liger Leadership Academy Cambodia
MORE THAN A SCHOOL...
Liger Leadership Academy (LLA) is more than a school. In addition to the essential curriculum, we educate students in project, opportunity, and experiential-based learning. Liger’s innovative model has enabled our young leaders to excel beyond traditional subjects. Our students have become internationally published authors, app and digital currency developers, regionally recognized robotics engineers, and national award-winning filmmakers – all by the age of 18. Liger students aren’t waiting for tomorrow; they are changing their country now.
LIGER LEARNING© MODEL
The Liger Leadership Academy is committed to nurturing highly-skilled entrepreneurial thinkers who are globally-minded, determined, ethical, passionate, and effective. Liger students aren’t waiting for tomorrow; they are changing their country now.
At LLA, students take part in learning experiences which vary in length from one hour to multiple years. Our curriculum is based on current, cutting-edge practices from around the world. Unlike most schools, Liger does not have a standardized curriculum. While we provide a unified educational foundation to all students, we tailor learning experiences to each student that are essential to their desired future beyond the classroom.
Traditional teaching methods employ a convergent approach to teaching and learning wherein instruction is provided through a teach-defined set of criteria and set curriculum, with a goal of meeting at a common point of understanding. The Liger model takes a divergent approach wherein the teacher is open to and takes advantage of appropriate available learning opportunities. The divergent approach provides an authentic and deeply meaningful learning experience in order to reach the goals of the program.
We focus on establishing and developing a set of Core Values in all our learners; values that everyone affiliated with the Liger Leadership Academy strives to live by in their daily lives and interactions with one another and with the world at large.
