Albanian College Durres’ (ACD) new International Residential Programme has what students want and need: a world-class education, exciting activities and excursions, and wonderful experiences in vibrant and beautiful Albania–the hidden gem of Europe located on the Adriatic Sea in southeastern Europe. The International Residential Programme is for students in Grades 8-12 (ages 13-18).

Albania has one of the lowest costs of living in Europe. ACD can offer all of the benefits of a world-class education, dedicated teachers, and the wonders of Albania at a fraction of the cost of other boarding schools in Europe and North America.

ACD is a dynamic International Baccalaureate World (IB) school where students grow into creative and compassionate young people. The IB curriculum empowers students academically and as citizens of their communities and of the world.

All ACD teachers are certified and IB trained, as well as hold degrees in their fields. In addition, ACD teachers and administrators also serve as IB Subject examiners, Workshop leaders, Consultants, School Visit Team Members, and Authors. The expertise of ACD teachers prepares students with the best learning opportunities and preparation for IB exams. An IB graduate possesses all the skills to succeed at university.

ACD’s location on the Adriatic Sea and near the mountains enables residents to experience Albania’s natural beauty including pristine seas, mountains, and valleys. Amidst the scenery, lie historical gems and UNESCO World Heritage Sites. ACD incorporates Albania’s natural and historical setting into its activities programme. Sea-based activities include scuba diving with PADI certification, sea kayaking, and sailing. The hills and mountains provide opportunities for hiking, cycling, and rock climbing, as well as special excursions for skiing or white-water rafting.

Albania is a place of warm welcomes, hospitality, and safety. It is a tradition called besa. Beas has its meaning in belief, trust, or faith. It has come to symbolise the culture of hospitality that dates well into the past and still present today.

Albania is an official candidate for EU membership. The European Commission recently implemented the next step in Albania’s ascension into the EU. Albania is a member of NATO, International Monetary Fund, The World Bank, Organisation for Co-operation and Security in Europe, the United Nations, and numerous other international organisations.
