Agora Sant Cugat International School is a prestigious private international school, founded in 1989, with three campuses located in Sant Cugat and which occupies sixth place in the top ten ranking of the best schools in Spain.The school has obtained IB Continuum accreditation for the International Baccalaureate programme with the three curricular programmes in all its educational stages and since 2016 has also been offering Vocational Training degrees. Characterised by its educational innovation and personalised attention to each student, it offers a truly multilingual education where teaching is mixed, plural and open, encouraging respect for different beliefs in order to educate in dialogue and tolerance. The school provides students with the tools to build their own learning and focuses not only on academic performance, but also on personal development.
Its international character is, fundamentally, due to its truly multilingual education, which offers English, Catalan, and Spanish as working languages, and introduces Mandarin Chinese, French and German into the curriculum. The exchanges the school promotes, the journeys abroad and the participation in international events and activities ensure the school has an unmistakably international nature. It must be pointed out that the school is part of the prestigious Globeducate, which has over 55 schools in 10 countries making it very easy for them to take part in international events, exchanges and a myriad of global and multicultural experiences.
In our three campuses, the main objective is to offer pupils the tools to construct their own learning, and educate them in the values of respect and tolerance, self-improvement, responsibility, and social commitment. All this contributes to helping the pupils achieve their dreams, providing them with learning about life which will prepare them to live and work anywhere in the world.
The pupils’ education not only focuses on their academic development, but also on their personal development. Thus, their ethical awareness is brought alive through the discovery of values and the building of attitudes which stay with the students throughout their lives.
Families, Pupils, Teachers and Alumni
At Agora Sant Cugat International School, Agora Pipo and Agora Patufet Infant Schools, we believe that the families are the cornerstone in the pupils’ learning process and give importance to a constant, three-way relationship between the school, the students and their families. Families are one of the main keys to success at this important stage in the children’s lives.
We encourage communication to create an atmosphere of trust and ties in a close and personal way, adapting to the needs of the pupils and their families. Agora Sant Cugat International School’s objective is to develop a harmonious bond, whereby the families are aware of every decision which involves the pupils, and at the same time gain an in-depth understanding of all the ins-and-outs of the school.
The family-school relationship is fundamental for working together. We focus on education in the academic field, on developing people so that they can be part of the world, without forgetting the values we want to transmit. We ensure that the pupils have responsible freedom, accepting and assuming their responsibilities and the consequences of their actions. They are capable of analysing what happens around them, and learn to have self-control and self-discipline. The school and the family are aligned on one common priority: the pupil’s all-round development.
The pupils are in an environment where importance is placed on being international and multilingual, which enables them to learn different languages and values and opens their minds to tolerance and respect. The study plan is backed up by sporting activities, music and art, giving the pupils an added value for their present and future.
In addition, we develop the pupils’ creativity from a young age, and at all educational stages. They learn to think independently with the help of the new technologies that are ever-present in modern-day society.
We have a selected teaching staff who are responsible for transmitting their enthusiasm. Each student is unique, which is why we offer personalised attention with support programmes that promote motivation, stimulation and self-improvement. We make each student the protagonist of this complex process of development.
The ex-pupils of Agora Sant Cugat International School are an obvious example of the success attained after years of hard work, great effort and unyielding dedication. We are proud to see how our comprehensive preparation has successfully guided them towards their higher studies and professional careers and made them people who cherish values of respect, hard work and camaraderie.
