Meet our Students

Our English language high school is surrounded by Western Civilization’s most significant historic monuments, such as the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, and Circus Maximus--all within minutes of our campus. Teachers use the Eternal City as their classroom, and students like Maxime, Marissa, Giorgia, Ben, and Elena gain first-hand knowledge of history, art, archaeology, classics, and cultural heritage. We provide a world-class education in an intellectually challenging environment that transforms young minds and prepares them to excel in high school and in their future endeavors. If you have a few questions, our Student Ambassadors can probably help you.
