The Presidential Lyceum "Sirius" implements the best educational practices within the framework of basic and additional general education programmes for preschoolers and schoolchildren from 1st to 11th grade. The Lyceum combines classical education with the latest educational technologies. A full cycle of general education programmes is implemented, combining the capabilities of six schools: general education, language, research, engineering and mathematics, sports, art and music. Leading teachers of the Educational Centre "Sirius" and their methods of teaching talented children are available to every lyceum student.

Joint programmes

"Sirius" also conducts joint educational programmes with leading schools and regional centres. This approach makes it possible to combine the resources of the best teachers and schools and create a nationwide system for identifying, training and supporting gifted schoolchildren, including through the use of intensive programmes, career guidance, research and project activities, as well as remote support for each child.

For teachers
