Venue and Company description

We are a united, welcoming community that embraces students and their families from almost 100 different nations.

Our community, while large, celebrates and builds on the success of individuals, with an aim to create a wider impact through our mission. UWCSEA  embodies everything the UWC movement stands for: concern and compassion for others, the willingness to accept responsibility, and tenacity in pursuit of the truth. What also distinguishes our students is how much they give service to others: their compassion and commitment are writs large in the many hundreds of hours of impactful service the College bears witness to every year, across a hugely diverse range of activities, and which we celebrate as much as our academic achievements.
