PACK belongs to the group of most rapidly developing non-public schools in Krakow imparting holistic education to the students for over a period of 25 years.
The first school to open within the branches of Prywatne Akademickie Centrum Ksztalcenia (PACK) was VIII Prywatne Akademickie Liceum Ogólnoksztalcace, instituted in the year 1993. Afterwards, all the sister schools such as Friderick Chopin Private Academic Middle School (1999), Academos Private Primary School (2008), International Baccalaureate World School 006265 (2012), World Around Intercultural Middle School (2015), and World Around Intercultural Primary School (2015) began operating.
The vision of the Founder Director Principal Professor Jerzy Waligóra, is to ensure thorough intellectual and emotional growth. PACK aims toward academic excellence in order to educate and enable the youth leaders to be men and women of character who pursue their individual passions with the help of internationally recognized and innovative academic, and co-curricular programme. Thereby, becoming valued representatives of their local, national, and international communities.
For several years the school has taken the leading place in the All-Polish Secondary Schools League Tables compiled and published by "Perspektywy", "Rzeczpospolita" and "Gazeta Wyborcza". It has been ranked among the first five schools between the years 2015 to 2019 in the Malopolska region.
The academic programme benefits because of the teaching staff of the school, who are also academicians at Krakow universities, thus guaranteeing high standards of scholastic support.
The school offers the National Polish Curriculum for students of the primary and senior section. The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme welcomes students from diverse nationalities.
Learning from life is an integral part of the curriculum. The school provides international, educational and cultural opportunities through community service projects, exchange programmes and international engagements. Each year students participate in the Exchange Programme with India, Nepal, the USA, Norway and Germany. They also collobrate and participate in International Summits, International Model United Nations Symposium and International Competetive Events. The School has also been accredited as UNESCO Associated School. The students participate in various global projects promoting peace and international understanding.
