When the summer comes around, it is an exciting time for Uskudar American Academy. The school opens its gates to children who want to enjoy special activities in this beautiful campus, while improving their English with English speaking mentors.

As well as developing their language skills, they will get the chance to understand that they are a part of the wider world thanks to our ‘Around the World’ Program. They celebrate Chinese New Year, enjoy crafting Indian paper tigers, and prepare Italian snacks. It is two weeks of fun and is aptly named
‘Uskudar American Academy Summertime’!

“Around the World”


What does UAA Summertime offer?

UAA Summertime offers 2nd to 6th graders a unique opportunity to experience the atmosphere and tradition of a 145-year-old school, located on a unique campus of historically significant buildings and glorious gardens. They will be immersed in an English-speaking environment and enjoy specifically designed activities, sports and enhance their creativity during their summer vacation.

What makes
UAA Summertime special?

Uskudar American Academy has been nurturing morally upright and free-thinking young people since the 1870s and its philosophy has ensured its students become global citizens. Therefore, in addition to strong English exposure, UAA Summertime will provide fun ways in which children learn to become global citizens in the ‘Around the World’ program.

We will ensure that every child understands and lives the philosophy that everyone, no matter where they live, is part of a global community. We all share similar experiences, such as playing fun games, cooking tasty dishes and having caring families. The children will understand how life may be different for people from different cultures, but that we can all live in harmony as truly global citizens.


Our world is filled with diverse people, countries and cultures. On this program we will pack for different countries and understand the world through experiencing their celebrations, games, cuisines and famous artists.


If you can't stop tapping your toes to the beat, then we have a place where you can dance your socks off! Here you will swing to some dances of the world like the Adumu of Kenya or the Holi Dance of India.


Let’s prepare and eat different cuisines from all over the world. Not only because we have huge appetites, but because we are learning about a particular culture by exploring their delicious food.


We agree that music is the greatest communication tool in the world. Even if people don't understand the language, they still know good music. Here we enjoy world rhythms from America to Africa, from Europe to Asia.


Art is the most colorful way to discover the world. How about making art for world festivals? If you say “yeah!” then come to cut dragons for Chinese New Year and craft Indian paper tiger for Holi. We love it, because festivals keep us connected to different cultures.


Science plays an important role in making our planet fair and healthy. Our approach in science helps us to understand global issues through real-life learning.


Roar Tigers! Because we are going to jump at the chance of enjoying children’s games from other countries. Enough? Of course not, we are energetic Tigers! We will play various sports, like basketball and badminton. After all, summer is all about jumping and roaring, is it not?

* Let's enjoy our moments with music under the supervision of Pannonica Cretive Music Course Instructors
Ali Perret and Timucin Sahin both internationally renowned contemporary Jazz performer, composer and educator.
