St.Hua Private School is established in 1997 by a group of experienced graduates from recognized universities such as National University of Singapore (NUS) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU).

Additionally, most of our courses are subsidized by SkillsFuture credit, an initiative offered by the Singapore Government to upgrade Singapore Citizens’ skills by providing each citizen with $500 in funding to partake any eligible course they wish.

Ultimately, we aim to ensure that students are better equipped with the necessary skill sets to meet the requirements of society, to prepare them for the workforce and to enhance and elevate current workers’ skills so that they can better fit their current job and propel them to further heights in Singapore society.

Furthermore, St.Hua Private School is recognized and accepted by CPE (Council of Private Education) to practice as a private school from 9th January 2017 to 8th January 2021.
