Escola Eleva is a Brazilian bilingual school that has four campuses in Brazil. Two in Rio de Janeiro, one in Botafogo and the second one in Barra da Tijuca, a third one in Recife, in the Northeast of Brazil, and a fourth one in Brasília, our capital. Across all sites, Escola Eleva students attend nurturing schools committed to academic excellence and are proud to celebrate the diversity of Brazilian culture. Our mission is to form a new generation of leaders capable of making a difference in their lives contributing to a better world.

Currently Escola Eleva offers the IB Diploma for high school students at two campuses, Botafogo and Barra da Tijuca, both in Rio de Janeiro.

Founded in 2017, Escola Eleva Botafogo is situated in a century old building with an area of 12,600 m2, whose history has always being linked to education and which today we are proud to occupy and preserve. From 2023 we are going to have a new unit in Urca, our high school students will study in a centenary building in front of Praia da Urca, once home of Cassino da Urca, TV Tupi and IED. With modern facilities at their disposal they will develop to the maximum and live meaningful experiences during the last years of their school life.

At Escola Eleva Botafogo we educate students from kindergarten till the end of High School, aged 2 to 19, offering a bilingual academic environment that enables our learners to exceed their goals and to become successful, well-rounded individuals, while positively contributing to a better world.

Our highly-qualified educators are dedicated to each and every child and to ensure they receive the best possible opportunities to achieve their full potential, while at school and beyond graduation. Internationally-recognised IB-accredited qualifications, exciting extra-curricular activities, and a unique socioemotional programme place our children in a prime position to thrive.

Students learn in cutting-edge facilities and access resources that offer outstanding modern technology to support STEAM, Sports, Humanities, and Arts classes. Additionally, each learner receives excellent pastoral care and advice from specialist University Counsellors over an extended period, aiming to provide the support they need to proceed to the best universities and opportunities in the world.

Since May 2022, Eleva is proud to be part of the Inspired Education Group, the leading global group of premium schools. We have since been adapting our curriculum and activities to achieve even higher standards, bringing Inspired's best practices and experience from more than 80 schools in over 20 countries.
