Distinctive elements of our educational project

The curriculum at Agora Sant Cugat International School is defined by 5 distinctive principles: the International Baccalaureate as an educational model for the future, Multilingualism, Music, Sport, and a commitment to provide our students with the tools they need to become global citizens, capable of making the world a better place.

Music and Expression

Music and Expressive Arts form an integral part of a child’s development and provide enormous cognitive and personal benefits, enhancing communication skills and building confidence and self-esteem. The arts and music play a central role in the school’s curriculum: we are affiliated to the Liceu Music School in Barcelona and we offer a range of courses in the arts, dance, theatre and public speaking.

Shaping the world

Children entering education today will graduate as young adults in 2030. Our mission is to prepare them for jobs that have not yet been created, for technologies that have not yet been invented, and to solve problems that have not yet been anticipated. We must encourage our young people to embrace and shape their own futures and to understand that they form part of a wider international community and are capable of shaping the world.

“Agora Sant Cugat International School is much more than an excellent academic cradle. The global readiness, international experiences, music, sports, creative arts, and the focus on values, self-improvement, social commitment, respect, tolerance, and responsibility, are the pillars which support the personal and professional successes of our pupils, who are preparing to live successfully in a globalised world”

Vicenç Gandol

Headmaster of Agora Sant Cugat International School

“Creativity has been a mainstay in my life and I began to realise its full potential when I was at Agora school. Every week we would have to write a text on a given subject and we would share it with our classmates by reading it aloud. (…..) When I started at the school I was surprised by the freedom we had to bring up subjects and by how we were encouraged to make ourselves heard and take an active part in the lessons.
