La Scuola d'Italia is a multicultural, multilingual institution located in the heart of Manhattan. At La Scuola, students pursue both Italian and U.S. rigorous curricula simultaneously, supported by a nurturing international community comprised not only of Italian families, but of 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, in May 2018 La Scuola was officially authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme to its 11th and 12th grade student population.
As a result, La Scuola students enjoy the unique possibility of graduating with a high school diploma that is fully recognized by all university institutions in both Europe and the United States. As an integral part of La Scuola's current academic offering, the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme naturally provides our students with even better opportunities to excel on a truly global stage.
La Scuola takes great pride in its commitment to the harmonious integration of different disciplines, cultures, and languages into its carefully designed K-12 curriculum. An exceptionally dedicated and highly qualified faculty, actively engaged in its professional growth, 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 (English, Italian, French) and classical (Latin) 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.
