SOTA: School of the Arts Singapore

Empathetic H.I.P.P. Leader

SOTA seeks to develop future cultural leaders with:

  • Humility
  • Integrity
  • People-centredness
  • Passion

Through the affective programmes, SOTA nurtures leaders who will contribute positively and meaningfully to their community with their creativity and talents. Programmes and activities such as Character and Citizenship Education (CCE); Education and Career Guidance (ECG) Programme; Level camps; service learning programmes; Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) projects and leadership expeditions develop students’ social-emotional skills and leadership qualities.


These programmes and activities encourage students to contribute meaningfully to local and global communities. They are also given the opportunities to initiate, plan, execute, and lead their own community projects to meet the needs of the community or organisation they serve.


SOTA has a dedicated team of teacher-mentors, comprising Class, Year, Arts, and Academic Mentors to meet our students’ social-emotional, artistic and academic needs while supporting their holistic development as empathetic H.I.P. Leaders with Passion.
