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.
