At Invictus, we believe that education transcends borders. Our commitment to internationalism lies at the heart of our educational philosophy. We understand that the world is becoming increasingly interconnected, and we are dedicated to preparing our students to thrive in this globalized landscape.
Internationalism at Invictus is more than just a concept; it's a way of life. It's about fostering a global mind set, nurturing cultural competence, and empowering our students to become responsible global citizens.
The Invictus International School has pioneered transformative intercultural exchange programs in collaboration with partner schools and organizations across the globe. These initiatives serve as a gateway to enriching global experiences, opening doors to the diverse cultures of various nations. Through these programs, our students embark on journeys to countries that span continents, including the United States, Russia, Denmark, Germany, France, Spain, Paraguay, Argentina, Brazil, South Africa, Colombo, Egypt, the United Kingdom, Azerbaijan, Trinidad and Tobago, Mexico, Indonesia, Japan, and Hungary. Simultaneously, we take pride in hosting students from these very nations, fostering a vibrant cross-cultural exchange that bridges geographical boundaries.
Notably, Invictus International has had the privilege of hosting students through the distinguished Cultural Exchange program, welcoming international student delegates from France, Italy, Thailand and Japan. Besides revelling in school’s fair boasting traditional art, attire, cuisine, dance and culture, the student delegates also had an interactive session with Invictors familiarizing them with their respective cultures. We believe that such collaborations bring students together globally to foster cultural awareness, develop knowledge, skills and attitudes to engage in cross-cultural learning and collaboration.
The World Scholar's Cup is an international academic competition and enrichment program for students around the world. The WSC aims to promote interdisciplinary learning, critical thinking, teamwork, and global awareness among students. The World Scholar's Cup is a unique and enriching educational experience that goes beyond traditional academic competitions. It fosters a love for learning, encourages teamwork, and helps students develop valuable skills that can benefit them in their academic and personal journeys.
Invictus’ overwhelming participation and massive success in World Scholar’s Cup is another way of exposing our students to hitherto unknown, and educating them by interacting with and contesting against students from across the globe. Our students’ experience in the WSC Global Round held at Vietnam and WSC Tournament of Champions held at Yale University (UK) has been phenomenal and memorable. Our students left everyone open-mouthed with their exemplary performance in Tournament of Champions held at Yale University.
Learning at Invictus is extraordinary and experiential. And, more than anything, empowering. In order to educate and inspire our students to explore business practices, analyze the world’s complex challenges, and take the first steps in becoming leaders who will transform the global economy, we ensure their participation in the acclaimed Wharton Global High School Investment Competition which is an online investment simulation for high school students. We’re proud to share that 23 Invictors aced this contest learning about teamwork, communication, risk, diversification, company and industry analysis, and many other important aspects of investing.
In yet another effort to promote internationalism, the school keeps organizing Skype interactions with our partner schools abroad. Recently, our students engaged in cross-cultural communication through Skype with the students of Forsaklackskolan in Borlange, Sweden. Invictors elicited excitement among them with their enactment on Indian culture, Bhangra, Rajasthani dance, traditional couplets and the cuisine of Punjab. The interaction among the students culminated in greater knowledge and greater confidence, with skills required for this century in contexts within and beyond their ordinary educational experiences.
Trinity College London examinations held in schools are a valuable educational initiative that assesses students' language and communication skills. By conducting Trinity College London examinations within schools, Invictus facilitate the holistic development of students while ensuring that they are well-prepared for future academic and professional challenges. These examinations not only assess language proficiency but also promote creativity, critical thinking, and effective communication, making them a valuable addition to the school curriculum.
Every year, around 200 students participate in Trinity College Examination London. This massive participation and phenomenal results are a reflection of our commitment to providing a holistic education that empowers students to shine in various aspects of life. It is heartening to see our students not only meet but exceed expectations in these examinations, showcasing their exceptional communication and performance skills.

Model United Nations (MUN) stands as an insightful academic emulation of the United Nations (UN), purposefully designed to educate its participants on a multifaceted array of subjects encompassing current events, international relations, diplomacy, and the UN’s dynamic agenda. This distinctive platform not only imparts knowledge but also cultivates a profound understanding of the intricacies that shape global affairs.

Each participant is entrusted with the representation of a nation or a non-governmental organization (NGO) in meticulously orchestrated sessions mirroring UN committees. These could span from the esteemed Security Council to the all-encompassing General Assembly. This immersive role-play encourages students to delve into their designated country’s perspectives, motivations, and concerns.

The tangible results of their dedication manifest in the form of well-deserved accolades earned at each conference.
