The IB – a model for the future
Agora Sant Cugat International School offers an ambitious educational project with six languages taught by native teachers with an international profile and imparts three of the International Baccalaureate programmes – the Diploma Programme (DP), the Primary Years Programme (PYP) (it is one of only 20 schools in Spain authorised to do so) and it is a candidate school for the Middle Years Programme (MYP). These programmes are a model for the future that develop the key competencies in students for their academic, professional and personal success and helps them to achieve their goals in an international context.
We prepare our students for an international future without limits or barriers offering a multilingual educational project with linguistic immersion beyond English and enables students to master the official local languages together with English, French, German or Chinese.
