Tarsus American College (TAC) is one of the most important academic institutions of Turkey which rises above the motto “Leaders for Turkey, Leadership for the World”. The fact that the school has the highest national rate of alumni who have taken senior administrative positions both in and outside of Turkey indicates a significant breakthrough towards achieving this major aim. Also, the fact that Muhtar Kent’s, the first Turk to run one of the most important worldwide corporations, Coca-Cola, being a TAC graduate is a fine example of the mission regarding providing leadership to the world.
Such examples, which are not limited to the business world and are also present in academics, sports and art, shows another feature of TAC: individualized concern for the individual to help realize their potential at the same time as encouraging the development of team work skills with the emphasis given to collective effort and production.
Tarsus American College believes in the importance of protecting the rights of today’s and future generations, hence in raising well-balanced, respectful, well-educated individuals who respect other people’s rights and are committed to serving the country and humanity. It promotes voluntary-based humanistic activities to benefit the society. A fitting example to this is Altan Ünver’s, as a TAC graduate, leading the establishment of Turkish Development Association which have made invaluable contribution to the rural development in Turkey, as an extension of the community service activities undertaken at TAC.
In order the raise well-balanced individuals with a healthy mind and strong intellect and intuition holistic education is essential. That is why at TAC, classroom teaching is only one part of an overall education. For instance, a physics teacher’s involving his students in observing the movement of astral objects through a telescope at midnight is an indicator of this approach.
