Distinctive elements of our educational project
The educational project of Agora Barcelona International School is defined by 5 distinctive elements: the International Baccalaureate as a model for the future, multilingualism, STEAM, sport, and the commitment to provide our students with the tools to grow as global citizens who can shape the world.
IB: A model for the future
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) provides students with a comprehensive, well-regarded academic qualification, which is accepted by the world’s most prestigious universities. The IB is an innovative programme designed to develop key competences, enabling our students to achieve their academic, professional and personal goals within an international framework.
We prepare our students for an international future. We offer a multilingual curriculum with immersion in both English and official languages and with classes offered in French, German and Chinese. To complement our school-based language programme, students are invited to participate in international events, exchanges and trips to a variety of overseas destinations.
STEAM: Science and arts
Art and science through STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) competencies are key to the integral development of children: they provide enormous cognitive and personal benefits, in addition to enhancing their communication skills. Music, arts and expression play a leading role in our educational project thanks to our link with the Conservatory of the Liceu of Barcelona and comprehensive arts, dance and public speaking programmes.
Sport, Health & Fitness
We promote the values implicit in participating in sporting activity, such as self-discipline, determination, a sense of fair-play and team spirit. At Agora Barcelona International School, we have a passion for sport and encourage our pupils to embrace healthy habits, enjoy an active lifestyle and to work towards long-term emotional and physical balance.
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.
