HISTORY

Founded in 1992, Transylvania College Foundation - Happy Kids Foundation at that time - set up the basis of “Happy Kids Kindergarten”. Initially the kindergarten was housed in a small apartment and had 12 students enrolled. As the number of students attending the kindergarten grew bigger year by year, the foundation constructed their own building to house Happy Kids – the very first kindergarten built in Romania after the Revolution.

At the beginning of the year 2000, the idea of developing the first educational Campus in Romania was born. The International School of Cluj opened the doors of the first primary classes in the academic year 2000-2001, proceeding to opening the secondary school four years later, in 2004.

In 2008, with the support received from partners and the local community, the first educational building was built, according to international standards, housing at that time 170 students from kindergarten, primary and secondary school.

In 2010 the school opened the gates of the first Cambridge International high school, accredited by the University of Cambridge International Examinations. Our student population increased dramatically; therefore in 2011 we developed the campus construction project, taking into consideration the most modern architectural trends. Our new kindergarten addition to the campus is the first educational building in Romania built on green principles. In the new building, inaugurated in September 2012, children 1 to 8 years old play, study and discover the world in 8 spacious classrooms. All of our children and the students from Pre-K through high school have the opportunity to enjoy the Multimedia Library, a new Art Room, a Music Room, a Business Room, a high-tech Robotics Lab and a swimming pool, dedicated to children 4 months to 10 years old. Our vision for achieving excellence in education has a holistic approach at its core. We offer our students many opportunities to discover and develop their talents and abilities, but we also promote healthy lifestyle principles. This is why the next step in our campus development will be the construction of an Auditorium, followed by a Sports complex, our goal being set toward building the first multi-court sports complex in Romania with basketball courts and a semi-Olympic size swimming pool.

We take pride in the fact that we have managed to build a strong community and that our institution has been recognized as a model of good practice by experts in the field of education. All that we have achieved will benefit future generations.
