The European International School of Barcelona has developed a special, comprehensive and integrative project based on more than 40 years of experience in the educational field. Due to elite student athletes requiring flexibility, time management, and self-responsibility our students are provided with a specialized academic program.
The AESA Prep program provided by the European International School of Barcelona allows our players to have a blended learning curriculum combining classroom and online work.


All students graduate with an American High School Diploma after earning the necessary credits. The curriculum includes core courses in math, science, English, and social studies, as well as electives and physical education. This program is used by high performance athletes around the world. The NCAA approved program follows American curriculum for grades 9th to 12th.
The SEK Educational Model places special emphasis on the development of emotional intelligence skills, integrating them into the curriculum. The International Baccalaureate programmes (PYP, MYP and DP) include creative resolution of conflicts. Our teachers receive training from different members of this international organisation, as well as by experts in education.
The Diploma Programme features the Flipped Classroom method which promotes the acquisition of information prior to the start of the school day, so that class time is transformed into collaborative learning activities between peers with the help of teachers.


The SEK Educational System is based on knowledge acquisition through the exploration and understanding of concepts, research and the development of competencies that encourage critical thought and creativity. SEK students learn strategies that will permit them, throughout their lives, to be autonomous, self-assured and able to learn independently.
IB prepares students for university with emphasis on a well-rounded education promoting fundamental skills such as independence, time management, and self-study.
