At Collegio San Carlo, the learning path begins in preschool, where the foundations are laid for an intercultural and multilingual approach, stimulating individual and social development and providing an initial contact with digital innovations.

The first experiences. The first social relationships. The first steps in the outside world.

Safe inside specially designed spaces, the children are always supervised by two teachers, a native Italian-speaker and a native English-speaker, as well as 4 assistants, for a child/teacher ratio of 10 to 1. Ours is not a standard method school: we have founded the “San Carlo Multicultural Method”.

The Primary School is where the foundations are laid and the multilingual and cross-cultural approach is consolidated. Intercultural, digital tools are used to favor learning, the children are stimulated to cultivate their curiosity and strengthen their reasoning, and attention is also paid to the development of social and spiritual aspects and a growing sense of autonomy as middle school approaches.

Relations and environments for growth

Primary teachers are mostly Italian, co-teachers are native English-speakers, specialists in individual subjects and the arts: professional educators, quality spaces and effective tools provide a fertile environment that favors social and intellectual growth
