We prepare our students to thrive in their chosen university and career paths through our highly personalized curriculum, superb career guidance, and entrepreneurial approach to education. Our faculty is composed of world-class IB teachers with international experience.

The Entrepreneurship Project

Co-designed and taught by the IE Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation, students undertake an Entrepreneurship Project during the two years of the IBDP. Throughout the project they will identify, develop, validate, and pitch their ideas for business ventures, developing skills such as critical-thinking, creativity, and collaboration.

Entrepreneurial education focuses on developing real-world skills that will help students navigate and excel in a rapidly changing world. These skills include problem-solving, teamwork, empathy, as well as learning to learning to overcome obstacles and challenge oneself as a part of the growth process; attributes that are highly valued by the top universities and will serve students well beyond they graduate.

University & Career Guidance

Students are prepared to thrive in their desired higher education studies and careers. The Guidance Program is designed to help each student identify the appropriate undergraduate degree and university for their profile and future aspirations. They receive support from our University Counselor through one-on-one meetings, university visits and events, assessments, and professional advice.

Technology is integrated throughout our curriculum. Thanks to our alliance with IE University, our teachers are trained and have access to the most advanced technology-based methodologies and tools allowing them to personalize students’ educational experience and improve their learning outcomes.

CAS & Extended Experiences

Creative thinking, a healthy lifestyle and service within the community are essential for the personal development of students. As a result, Creativity, Activity, and Service (CAS) activities are a key element of the Diploma Programme, to be completed by students alongside their academic studies.

We offer a wide range of Extended Experiences, which provide students with opportunities for developing their interests, talents, organization, and leadership skills.

Wellbeing Program

The program is co-designed with the IE Center for Health, Wellbeing and Happiness. It focuses on three core areas essential for students to reach their full potential: body (health), mind (wellbeing) and spirit (happiness). Through workshops, activities and sessions based on research, we will provide knowledge and effective tools to make healthy lifestyle choices and understand their impact on wellbeing and academic performance. Sessions will take place throughout each term to strengthen these dimensions.
Fostering confidence and responsibility in our students is key for developing a growth mindset, where students believe in their own academic and personal development for their future success.

Winter Campus

During the winter, we transfer our whole campus to Val Thorens, France, for a full week of skiing and studying! Our students learn with asynchronous sessions in the afternoon, ski in the morning, and get in touch with new experiences, places, and cultures. This is part of our ongoing drive to maximize the use of EdTech tools to ensure they can learn from anywhere.

Pre-IB Summer Program

This program is an exciting opportunity for enrolled students to get prepared for the beginning of their course in September. During the Pre-IB Summer Program students learn about entrepreneurship, sustainability and develop their leadership skills. They will meet their future classmates and join an international community.

Sports

We strive to inspire our students to engage and enjoy physical activity. We offer a broad range of sports including soccer, volleyball, spinning, fitness, swimming, running, and basketball using modern facilities near our campus, including those of IE University. Our students will be able to join IE University’s teams and sports clubs.

Clubs

Led by teachers and students, clubs are a major part of the school experience and CAS opportunities. There are 30 clubs which include Blockchain, Debate, Chess, Entrepreneurship, Art, Coding, Economics, and many more.

Boarding

Our boarding house is located in El Viso, one of the safest, premium neighborhoods in Madrid. Only a short walk away from campus and close to the shopping and financial centers, our students are able to take advantage of all the opportunities offered by the vibrant city of Madrid. We provide accomodation in individual and shared double rooms, living room areas, a rooftop, cafeteria and laundry room within the residence.

At The Global College, the boarding community is central to school life. Students will live in a friendly and lively environment supervised by the Vice Principal for Pastoral Care, House Master and House Parent.

Our team oversees our student’s wellbeing, happiness and safety. Both House Parents live in the residence and are available 24/7 to support our students. They are the connection between the school and boarding life, and accompany students in the process of getting to know the city, making the best of their experience and in case of an emergency.

The House Parent is a trained psychologist and will be available for counseling as well as partnerships with local, multilingual centers.
