SISU Learner Profile

Be the Best You





in Me





SISU students grow up to be balanced and hard-working adults. They understand the importance of physical and mental wellbeing and are able to lead a healthy lifestyle.


SISU means persistence, grit, bravery, courage and will power. The SISU mindset means having extraordinary determination and endurance in the face of adversity. It is an action mindset that enables individuals to reach what was considered impossible.


SISU students become global citizens by knowing who they are, where they come from and by appreciating their roots and cultural heritage as well as that of others.


Future working life is unknown but SISU students are well prepared for innovative, creative, and cognitive challenges. They can do what a machine can never.

The SISU Program

Forget the subjects. Think BIG.

We welcome students aged 5-14 years old for the academic year 2023-2024.

We offer the following levels of the SISU Program:

SISU Kids - KG-Preschool (Age 3-5)

SISU Students - Grades 1-7 from the age 6. 

SISU Program is not based on the traditional division of subjects. We think bigger. Throughout elementary and middle school, children study phenomena combining different subjects, especially English, Mathematics, Science and Arts rather than focusing on discreet subjects.

The core contents of the program are five different areas together with the unique SISU skills that prepare students for life. 

SISU program has been prepared by experienced pedagogical experts and teachers with many years of experience in the field of education both in Finland and international contexts and it follows the standards of the Finnish National Core Curriculum.
