Main axes

The college offers an innovative approach to teaching and learning, integrating methodology courses and a program combining academic learning, sports and cultural activities.

Our aim is to enable our students to acquire a deeper understanding and position of learning that prepares them for the future.

Encourage curiosity, the desire to learn and initiative

Particularly structured and explicit teaching: give meaning to learning and see it as a progressive process. Take into account the special educational needs of certain students, who require appropriate teaching arrangements.

6th grade: the year of consolidation

Understanding is essential to building solid knowledge. All courses are concerned.

7th, 8th and 9th grades: the in-depth cycle

The aim is to enable students to develop skills across disciplines and in cross-disciplinary paths (health, citizenship, artistic and cultural education).

All disciplines contribute to developing students’ abstraction, modeling and creativity, with the aim of shaping critical minds.

The school aims to develop a spirit of responsibility and commitment, as well as the ability to undertake and cooperate with others.
