Moving to Andorra with the family is a challenge for residents. Living in the Principality with children means looking for education solutions. In this article, we will tell you which schools are best in Andorra so you can choose the one that best suits your children’s needs.
Before choosing between the institutes in Andorra, we must tell you that three educational systems converge in the Principality. These are Andorran, Spanish, and French. In addition, there are also two private schools in the country, one international multilingual and the other with the British educational system. These two institutions have a baccalaureate.
It is important to emphasize that all the parishes have schools for infant and primary education (from 2 to 11 years old). However, you must attend the main parishes for secondary and high school. How to choose the best high school in Andorra for your children?
The Andorran Baccalaureate School is located in La Margineda, and the subjects of this educational level are organized into five blocks:
To be able to study this baccalaureate, students must meet a series of requirements. The first one is to have the Andorran nationality or to reside legally in the country. It is also essential to be under 19 years of age and to have a secondary school diploma (ESO) or equivalent recognized by the Government of Andorra.
Por otra parte, si el alumno proviene de un sistema educativo diferente al andorrano, debe demostrar un dominio suficiente de las lenguas vehiculares. Esto puede hacerse a través de unas pruebas o acreditando los niveles de lenguas del Marco Común Europeo de Referencia. Debe tenerse B1 en catalán, castellano y francés o un A2 en inglés.
