    • School Characteristics
      • School Management Organisation Non-teaching related administrative work is mainly handled by Principal, Chief Deputy Principal, five Assistant Principals and a team of non-teaching supporting staff, while the teaching staff devote themselves to students' learning and pastoral care. This division enhances the overall quality of administration - teachers can focus on teaching while administrative matters are handled by staff recruited for that purpose. A professional team of experienced curriculum officers for different subjects has been employed to engage in curriculum development and professional staff development. We also invite local and overseas experts to advise the Academy on different professional matters and issues.
      • Incorporated Management Committee / School Management Committee/ Management Committee The Hong Kong Chinese Christian Churches Union Logos Academy Management Committee Limited.
      • School Green Policy The school has paper recycling scheme and encourages reduction in paper consumption.
      • School's Major Concerns 1. To improve students’ academic performance through curriculum development and teachers’ professional development 2. To nurture good characters, habits and attitude of students 3. To foster sustainable school development through self-evaluation
      • Learning and Teaching Plan
        • Learning & Teaching Strategies There are five semesters and 190 teaching days per academic year. The commonly known "Modular approach" practised overseas is used flexibly to optimise time slots for arranging lessons. These modules may vary from semester to semester. The school places emphasis on the authentic and genuine experiences both within and beyond school hours. In order to manage knowledge in a systematic and meaningful way, personal experiences are encouraged to be internalised within contexts in life. From Foundation Stage One onwards, cross-subject learning is promoted in all subjects. Science as well as humanity subjects adopt an integrated approach in curriculum design.
        • Development of Key Tasks The school has purchased thousands of readers and other books to encourage students to read extensively. DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) Time has been inserted in timetable to encourage teachers and students read silently at school. Parents are strongly involved in reading programs. Teachers of different subjects are often invited to speak and demonstrate teaching with the newest technologies in world conferences. Well-planned and timely project-study programs are introduced to develop the skills of students in research methodology, which is a major requirement in their learning at a later stage. Moral and character education are nurtured through religious education and family life education lessons.
        • Development of Generic Skills The school fosters a culture of self-management, self-learning and self-reflection. Generic skills such as creative and critical thinking are essential in learning. Student achievements are measured according to how well their generic skills are applied.
      • Student Support
        • Whole School Approach to Cater for Student Diversity Our school adopts a whole school approach to cater for students' diverse needs. Within the timetable, a self-study period is provided every day to allow students to partly finish homework at school. Teachers of Chinese, English and Mathematics will also select some students to provide them with remedial lessons during the self-study period. Various school-based gifted classes are also available to cater for the needs of gifted and talented students.
        • Whole School Approach to Integrated Education An educational psychologist and several social workers are employed to cater for the different needs of students. Supporting programs are launched for both the gifted students and students with learning difficulties.
        • Education Support for Non-Chinese Speaking(NCS) Students Our school provides additional support for NCS students to facilitate their learning of Chinese: School-based After-school Support Programmes provided.
        • Curriculum Tailoring and Adaptation Teaching materials from local publishers, mainland China, the UK and the US are used. The school strives to break away from the traditional "frames" of ideas and practices and to integrate the most effective ways of learning among the best education systems practised all over the world.
      • Home-school Co-operation and School Ethos
        • Home-School Co-operation Many parent meetings are held annually. Parents participate in these meetings actively. Logos Parents' Reading Community has been set up to encourage parents to read. In addition, newsletters are issued frequently. Through the PTA, the Volunteer Parent Helpers Scheme, the Parents Academy, the Parents Fellowship, the Parents Support Group and the Parents Praying Group, partnership between the school and parents and among parents are strengthened.
        • School Ethos The school promotes a student-oriented approach to handle issues and concerns raised during everyday school life. All stakeholders are encouraged to communicate with one another. Mutual understanding and respect are crucial factors to maintain a warm relationship and partnership among stakeholders.
      • Future Development
        • School Development Plan Logos Academy is founded on the Truth of the Bible, and on a global education perspective. It adopts the "through-train" mode of primary and secondary education, takes advantage of the flexibility of the direct-subsidy scheme and enjoys well-equipped classrooms and buildings with full learning facilities. With these, Logos Academy is in a privileged position to develop itself into a unique school of character, meeting world-class standards and comparing favourably with best-known quality schools in the world. We strongly believe that "the heart of education is education of the heart". Logos Academy is committed to assisting our students to pursue an abundant life built on the Truth, Goodness and Beauty. The school also cultivates and enhances our students' ability to inquire, reason, solve problems and face life's many challenges. It aims to nourish a culture of learning whereby learning is an effective and pleasurable undertaking for students. On this basis, Logos Academy has been serving as a meeting point for local and overseas educators of talent to work hand-in-hand in different positions. We maintain a strong connection with external organisations, gain good access to educational and scientific research, and implement new educational theories and ideas to ensure our progress is in the direction of excellence. Ongoing improvements and adjustments in the curriculum, teaching methods, the design of learning activities, assessments, management help us set the right direction to provide quality education for the community.
