Our new website

Our new website, which has been in the making over the last half a year, is finally up and running. While we still have work to do on the portals for our students, parents and staff to customise channels specific to them, I hope that the new site overall is a step in the right direction in terms of quick and easy access to essential information.  We went for the clean look with emphasis on functionality and user-friendliness. At this time of the year, when we focus on admissions for the next academic year, I am especially pleased that our Admissions section is an immense improvement and has comprehensive information on the very complex process of admissions to the UWC movement. 

The new website development has also given us an opportunity to crystalise some important notions for ourselves. We are a young school in its sixth year and still are looking to define ourselves as a special place. For example, why UWC Dilijan is an excellent choice for any talented young person motivated to receive education focused on the idea, to paraphrase US President John F. Kennedy, ask not what the world can do for you, ask what you can do for the world (JFK’s words were “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”)

True to the UWC mission on page Why UWC Dilijan in the Admissions section we highlight what makes UWCD a special place for learning and living. Those are: the UWC education, our vibrant community, strong partnerships with the organisations committed to the same ideals, and also our beautiful spacious campus located in the most unique environment in the most hospitable country with warm family spirit.

So if you are thinking of choosing an academic school with a difference in a safe area, which uplifts both your mind and spirits while giving you opportunities to develop yourself without changing who you are, we will be delighted to welcome you to our UWCD family.
