The Cognita Family of Schools









ISHCMC is proud to be part of the Cognita family of schools in Vietnam. Cognita is an extraordinary group of diverse yet connected schools joining forces in an inspiring world of education with one common purpose: building self-belief and empowering individuals to succeed. With 100+ schools in Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Asia, Cognita employs some 15,000 teaching and support staff in the care and education of more than 80,000 students.

Together, Cognita schools provide a uniquely global education that goes beyond grades to develop all-round academic excellence – equipping young people with the confidence and resourcefulness that prepares them to grow, thrive and find their success in a fast-changing world.

Be Well Charter philosophy of Cognita schools

Wellbeing is the foundation of a Cognita Education and it is integral to our overall purpose of ‘Providing an inspiring world of education: building self-belief and empowering individuals to succeed’. The Cognita Be Well Charter defines wellbeing and highlights six key contributors to wellbeing. One of our Be Well initiatives is Global Be Well Day (GBWD), an annual event when our schools collapse the curriculum for one day to focus entirely on wellbeing, with activities and events that involve the entire school community of students, parents and employees.
