The American Center for Applied Liberal Arts & Humanities In Asia (ACALAHA) Pte Ltd is a company incorporated and based in Singapore, the Education Hub of East Asia.

In the next several months, we intend to establish a US -- in San Francisco -- and Partners/Representative offices in strategic locations throughout Asia.

As the name implies, the purpose of ACALAHA is to establish a regional- and globally-oriented education and training company that uses the innovative concept of APPLIED Liberal Arts and Humanities to address real-world problems in a fundamentally new way.

The ACALAHA approach is specifically designed to provide an Ivy League / Oxford / Cambridge level of high quality content, delivered in refined and reflective circumstances.

We believe this will help students -- including those in the work place -- both appreciate the intrinsic worth of Liberal Arts and Humanities and realize the value of the insights generated by that tradition to the long-term solution of contemporary issues and problems facing not just Asia but the entire world.
