Our Curriculum:

Image of Summer Study Abroad Programs for High School StudentsOur curriculum reflects our response to the needs of students in an international environment, who aim to further their studies throughout the world. For us, education rightly conceived means: the readiness to channel natural curiosity in a coherent learning process; the ability to write and to speak with clarity and precision; the capacity to profit from the historical and artistic heritage of our civilization and from the cultural environment unique to Rome and Italy; the ability to reason and to describe in mathematical language and to engage in thinking of an exact scientific character; a command of at least two languages; and a commitment to cooperate in a multicultural community.

We stress the development of personal and social integrity; creativity and self-discipline in the fine and performing arts; concern for others through community service; and the spirit of cooperation and healthy competition in our sports program.

Our music summer course Chianti in Musica has been taken place since 2006 in San Donato in Poggio, a wonderful medieval town between Florence and Siena. The masterclass lasts a week, this year (XIV edition) will be July 20th - 28th.

Each year the event comprises instrumental lessons and musical ensemble, musical aperitifs, concerts and recitals.

The instrument courses are aimed at both high school students and middle school students. Some junior children have also participated in the past, accompanied by their parents to San Donato.

The instrument lessons are individual, and therefore modulated on the level of the student. In general, all students are invited to listen to their classmates' lessons as well.

Amateur musicians are welcome and can participate in the activities of the string orchestra. In this case, however, a short video is required (also home-made) to know their instrumental level.

The furniture is child-sized, allowing easy access to a wide range of carefully selected activities around the room. Each child chooses her or his activities freely, feeling safe in the knowledge that the teacher is always nearby and ready to support their efforts.
