We strive to give our students the necessary tools to successfully navigate through life as they grow and become skilled and competent global citizens.

They are empathetic, open minded and resolute; appreciate their own culture and respect the cultures of others. They are future-ready global citizens who are prepared for the real world and want to make a difference.
Our core objectives are to deliver rigorous academic programmes by working on a constant improvement of both instructional programs and methodology, holding ourselves to the highest international benchmarks. To encourage academic curiosity by supporting our students to develop knowledge, skills and agency to successfully face the challenges of an ever-evolving world. Our Early Childhood Center offers a warm and nurturing setting to establish the foundations of your child's academic future and being. teaching is entirely in English, a place to learn through play where acquiring a good grasp of the language comes naturally. In our Elementary School pupils follow a single curriculum meeting national and international standards. The curriculum includes cose subjects to which more timetabled hours are dedicated each week such as English, reading, Maths, Italian, Social Studies and Science and specialist subjects studied one or two lessons a week like Art, Music, Physical Education and Computer Science. The objective of the three year Middle School program is for pupils to gain mastery in all subjects with an international outlook, studying other foreign languages in addition to English (German, Spanish, Latin). At the end of the Middle School program students can opt to take a certified English Language exam at B2 level. Residential and Day trips in Italy, and abroad, contribute to the intellectual, emotional and physical development of the pupils. In our newly added five year High School program delivered entirely in English, the goal is to prepare students for university in Italy or abroad, and to become global citizens with the skills to engage with people from many cultural backgrounds with compassion and understanding. Upon successful completion of the program, students receive a diploma that is recognized by Italian Law. There are six core subjects: English, Social Studies, Mathematics, Science, Italian and a World Language. Additional subjects include Physical Education, Design Technology, Business Studies and Digital Media and Communication.
