One of the main focuses of European ISB is to give all our students the opportunity to achieve their goals, both personal and academic.
For our students focused on high sports performance, we offer three academic itineraries: International A Levels (face-to-face classes), AESA Prep International (API) School Diploma (face-to-face and online programme) and the national curriculum (face-to-face).
These programmes combine technical and tactical training and high-level physical training. With a tailor-made educational system that meets the needs of each player, respecting their practice schedule and competition dates, we help young talents become professional athletes, and we make sure they have the support of experts in both the sporting and the academic fields.
The American High School Diploma is the program that best suits these students. Based on credits, it allows them the flexibility to either concentrate on study or on their game, depending on the time of the school year.
We want our athletes to become autonomous and responsible
European International School of Barcelona is currently working in collaboration with international sporting companies.
We train our athletes to achieve excellence in their human and intellectual development. We encourage learning and we foster their natural abilities and gifts, teaching them how to use them for the common good.
We teach from an international, modern and practical point of view. In a world that’s getting more complex every day, we want our athletes to become autonomous and responsible individuals, able to study or compete in any place in the world.
We work with an active methodology, whose main goal is to help our students to “learn to learn” and enjoy the process, so they can be lifelong learners. We want them to be independent, and self-confident; and for them to see the school as the place where they feel appreciated, and can strengthen their natural abilities, their gifts; everything that makes them unique and special.
We tend our international families with face-to-face and online meetings. Experience tells us that academic and personal success is only achieved through effective and proactive communication between parents, students and teachers.
AESA Prep International (API) School Diploma
EIS Barcelona and AESA Prep International (API) offer a Blended learning approach to education that combines online educational materials and opportunities for interaction online with traditional place-based classroom methods. In the E-Blended learning program, students will use the AESA PREP online course and attend class in EISBarcelona facilities.
Blended learning program, students will attend class in EISBarcelona facilities for 6 hours per day, Monday through Friday. This compacted schedule gives student athletes the time they need for daily training. We also understand that students will need to miss class for tournaments and competitions, and this program adapts to these needs.
AESA Prep International (API) is a SACS/AdvancedEd accredited and NCAA approved private college preparatory school offering online and blended learning programs for 9th through 12th grade. AESA provides elite scholars, athletes and artists a world-class academic education with the flexibility required to pursue their passion.
Our academic program follows the American curriculum and currently serves 9th – 12th grade students (ages 14-18), offering them full access to the online school. However, in the blended learning program, we reinforce our online school with live instruction from teachers in a traditional classroom setting. Our teachers build real relationships with students and continuously monitor their progress. If a student begins to fall behind schedule, teachers will notify parents, coaches, and AESA administration, so we can help the students get back on track before the problem gets out of hand.
