The Academy

Who We Are

Brixsten Academy was founded in 2015 with the objective of providing quality education at affordable cost to various groups of students with the focus of improving the academic performance and building greater personality / character of every student who walks through the doors of the academy.

The founders of the academy were reputed tutors in Klang Valley who were able to impart their knowledge to every student they tutored. The idea of formalizing their efforts to a larger group of students resulted in the formation of Brixsten Academy. To date, the founders have reinvested their rewards into the business with the intention of providing additional facilities and services to students and staff alike.

Brixsten Academy believes that every student is unique by themselves, each with their own capabilities and shortcomings and it is this belief that the founders have shared with the rest of the academic team. This belief has made Brixsten different from other education providers, catering for individual student’s needs and thriving on making these students successful academically and in life.

This led to the growth of Brixsten Academy in serving students who were homeschooled and private candidates. We understand the emotional and psychological impact teenagers go through, to keep up with pressures of education achievement and society. We have customized and personalized our lessons based on the student’s needs and ability.

Brixsten is meant for students from various backgrounds and intelligence. We do not discriminate a slow learner from others. We have ensured that top achievers actually obtain the targeted excellent grades that they deserve, the average learner to step up to become an excellent grader and the slow learner to move up successfully to achieve the grades needed to step into tertiary education. That’s our ultimate goal and we have many success stories that we are proud of.

Brixsten Academy has been very selective in appointing their teachers / educators. The educators are all well-qualified and work in tandem with the aspirations of the founders to provide excellent education for all.

Finally, we believe that with the direction that we have followed since 2015, Brixsten Academy will be the ideal place for every student aspiring to have a pleasant and caring learning environment with the objective of excelling academically and in life.

Our Vision

Brixsten Academy’s vision is inspired by the passion for providing opportunities, solving real world problems and making quality and affordable secondary education accessible for everyone.

Brixsten Academy believes that every student can achieve more and do more. Therefore, we invest time creating a pathway that provides a solid educational foundation and simultaneously build trust with their parents. While parents and students expect nothing less than the best service, we understand the value of this trust that has been given to us.

To ensure that everyone has access to a high-quality education while narrowing the learning gap.
