We educate pupils, we shape people:
- Education of informed, socially-involved young people
Agora International School Barcelona is authorised to teach the prestigious IB Diploma Programme (International Baccalaureate). The IB is based on an eminently practical and experimental methodology in which the pupils play an active role and are encouraged to apply different learning approaches. Pupils can choose one of the two routes offered:
- Social Sciences Baccalaureate
- Science Baccalaureate
They’ll tell you about it
The most prestigious universities worldwide show great interest in pupils who obtain the Diploma Programme as a result of their capacity for hard work and effort as well as their human values.
“The International Baccalaureate is a good opportunity for pupils to attend foreign universities, with more possibilities than the rest with the normal Baccalaureate. In addition, an international baccalaureate studies a bit of every subject, and this enables pupils who are still hesitating about their future to think for longer about what they want to be.”
The International Baccalaureate is a programme which provides pupils with all-round preparation, offering them a variety of benefits such as developing critical and independent thought, involvement in the community and awareness of international issues.
This programme enables IB pupils to establish the foundations needed to access the world’s most prestigious universities, thanks to skill development, hard work, fluency in a second language, cultural awareness and the sense of respect and tolerance acquired over the course of their studies.
Through the International Baccalaureate programme pupils learn values which will be useful to them throughout their lives:
- They will learn to think critically and independently, developing their own learning.
- They will take part in a programme of studies which enables them to access the best universities worldwide.
- They will perfect their skills in a second language and develop their cultural sensitivity, something which will open doors for them internationally.
- They will become true citizens of the world, with an open mind about other cultures and opinions.
Thanks to the capacity for hard work and effort that pupils develop through the International Baccalaureate programme, the most prestigious universities worldwide show great interest in IB pupils. Pupils are offered a world as big as they want it to be.
In addition, both the National and International Baccalaureate programmes include a pre-university programme which helps pupils to find their vocation and assists them in choosing their profession.
In this way pupils are able to discover their strengths and weaknesses, improve these, and reach their objectives. That’s why, over the two academic years of the Baccalaureate we do “Dialogue Coaching” , which includes 10 sessions in which pupils take part in a series of activities to help them find their happiness and discover their goals in life. After the University Entrance Exams (P.A.U), we offer a Work Experience programme which brings our pupils closer to the reality of the professional world through a placement in a company.
