The quality of distinction can be found in that which is uniquely excellent. We define it as ‘the excellence which separates something among others’. Applied to education, distinction exists in the fulfilment of our individual and collective creative potentials. The AMADEUS distinction is embedded within our logo (our lotus) below.
Intellect – cultivation of the intellect, knowledge, academic prowess and critical thinking
Virtue – cultivation of self-awareness and character for human flourishing
Aesthetic – cultivation of an appreciation of beauty and excellence, artistic talent and taste
Vitality – cultivation of health, wellness, and strength of the body, mind and spirit
Music – cultivation of a love of music, engagement in music, and learning through music
Languages – cultivation of communication skills in two or more languages
Inclusivity – cultivation of international mindedness and development of global citizenship
“The AMADEUS Education is individualised and empowering. We inspire these dispositions in our young people in order that they may live flourishing lives now and in the future.” – Head of School, Jeremy G House
At AMADEUS Vienna, we accompany young people as they fulfil their highest potential.
At essence, we believe to ‘accompany’ means to walk alongside young people as they grow and develop. This provides students the freedom to make their path their own, whilst ensuring the correct measures of pace, support, challenge, and inspiration along the way. To reach one’s highest potential takes a positive and caring environment in which strengths are strengthened. It requires an environment where ‘highest potential’ is understood as flourishing, and learning is the ultimate good. An environment such as this stimulates students’ curiosities and creative energies; and fosters leadership, entrepreneurial spirit, and a commitment to excellence. This environment is built around our core values:
