Pupils | International private school Agora Sant Cugat
The pupils of Agora Sant Cugat International School are at our core, and are our main priority every day.
We ensure a quality education. On the one hand, academics, so that the pupils achieve their professional goals, and on the other hand, we offer an education so that the pupils grow and develop as people with skills adapted to our global environment and current dynamic.
Human values are the basis of our education, with the intention of instilling in pupils a responsible and adult model of life. Pupils receive an education in values which is based on respect and tolerance, self-improvement, responsibility, and social commitment.
To ensure a good education, several distinguishing factors are taken into account at Agora Sant Cugat International School:
Our teachers are hand-picked, and possess human and vocational qualities. The teacher is responsible for transmitting their own enthusiasm in everything they explain, and in every project they collaborate on.
Every pupil is unique and individual. For this reason, we offer personalised attention with support programmes which boost motivation, stimulation, and self-improvement. We make each pupil the protagonist of this complex process of development.
The pupils grow up in an environment in which importance is placed on internationality and plurilingualism, which enables them to learn different languages and values and opens their mind with the values of tolerance and respect.
We place great importance on a curriculum which includes traditional subjects and values sports, music, and art, which develop an added value in the pupil for their present and for their future.
We develop the pupils’ critical thinking abilities from a young age, and at all educational stages. They learn to think independently with the help of the new technologies from this society of information and awareness in which we live.
“A little worry, fading into the excitement of a first day which is different, new, and exciting. That’s how I felt when I set foot in the 1st Baccalaureate classroom for the first time. Since I was a new girl at the school, I considered that day as the beginning of a change of path, the start of a journey at that time unexplored, that of the International Baccalaureate. Now, at the beginning of the second term, I consider my experience at the school, and especially, what the international baccalaureate has offered me, as very enriching in so many ways. Not only in terms of academics, teaching me to develop my mind and inviting me to reflect on both academic aspects and those in our current society, but also on an individual level, making me grow as a person, encouraging the importance of human values.
Although I haven’t had many problems adapting, I am aware that this journey isn’t and will not be easy, it needs a lot of personal effort. But with my full dedication and perseverance, counting on the support of the teachers and the help and co-operation of my classmates, I believe it is possible to overcome any obstacle which may present itself. That’s why I encourage anyone considering studying this baccalaureate, since by working with enthusiasm, with excitement, and persistence, you reach the end of the journey with your objectives achieved.
“Hello! My name is Bianca and I’m 12 years old. I’m a pupil at Agora Sant Cugat International School, and always, since the first day of school, I’ve loved it! It’s all really exciting!
In the transition from my old school to Agora, lots of positive changes happened, and all the teachers were really useful. I had problems getting used to the different division methods in maths, and my teacher showed me how to do it step by step until I managed to understand it. Also, there are lots of nice people and that means that you can end up having lots of friends to spend time with. There are lots of opportunities to do different things like joining the school band, learning languages, and even learning to cook. The school challenges you to bring out the best in yourself, and who doesn’t like a challenge?
I still remember my first day in 6th Primary. I was excited to be in a new school, but also a bit nervous. After they introduced me to everyone, I remember that I felt relieved when I discovered that everyone was super nice, supportive, and welcoming.
It really is a very good school, since it improves your knowledge, and throughout 6th Primary I improved my language skills and music skills a lot. In my class we went on really fun excursions and trips to the countryside. My favourites were the trips where we stayed to sleep – one in autumn and another in the summer. In my first year I made lots of new friends and learnt interesting things about the world.
What I like about ASCIS is that everyone cares about you and you make friends for life.”
