PASCAL Education was founded in 1978 aiming to teach English as a second language and to prepare students for GCE A Level examinations in Mathematics and various other subjects under the trade name PASCAL Institute. Rapid expansion ensued and PASCAL Institute became the largest chain of institutes in Cyprus. Over those years more than 20,000 parents entrusted PASCAL Institute with their children’s learning.
The founder and CEO Mr Pantelis Andreou, a respected mathematician, went on and founded PASCAL English School in 1988, PASCAL Greek School (Ελληνική Σχολή ΠΑΣΚΑΛ) in 2001 and PASCAL Primary School & Kindergarten in 2017, all under the PASCAL Education umbrella.
