La Scuola d'Italia is a multicultural, multilingual institution located in the heart of Manhattan. At La Scuola, students pursue Italian and U.S. rigorous curricula simultaneously, supported by a nurturing international community comprised by people from all over the world who recognize the value of an internationally minded, multilingual, and academically challenging education.
In addition to being recognized by the Italian Ministry of Education, La Scuola is chartered by the Regents of the University of the State of New York and accredited by the New York State Association of Independent Schools (NYSAIS). As a further confirmation of the quality of its educational offering, La Scuola was officially authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme to its 11th and 12th grade students in May 2018.
As a result, La Scuola students enjoy the unique possibility of graduating with a high school diploma that is fully recognized by every university institution in Europe and the United States. Thanks to their International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme affiliation, our students now benefit from even greater opportunities to truly stand-out on the global stage.
La Scuola is committed to the harmonious integration of different disciplines, cultures, and languages into its carefully designed K-12 curriculum. An exceptionally dedicated and highly qualified faculty refines the curriculum regularly in a low teacher-student ratio environment.
La Scuola strives to prepare students for the academic, professional, social, cultural, and ethical challenges deriving from a globalized world. The education we offer aims to: a) develop in students the specific skills and knowledge required to excel in higher education and beyond within the domains of mathematics, science, modern and classical languages, history, philosophy, the arts and business management; b) foster in students a deeper understanding of their future role as thoughtful, respectful, caring and principled human beings in an ever expanding world community.
