Academia Igualada is a private, secular educational
institution assisted by the Government of Catalonia
It was in 1939 when the city of Igualada placed its founder, Antoni Jorba i Soler, in charge of leading a centre dedicated to education.
For more than seventy five years, Academia Igualada has grown and developed along with the pace of society, but has always remained loyal to its ethos and to the school’s project: a living school, close to families, welcoming, whose aim is the academic studies and education of students in the values of responsibility, the determination to succeed, coexistence, tolerance and respect.
At Academia Igualada we take into account that each child is unique and, therefore, we offer them a range of opportunities and strategies to grow as a person and to enjoy the pleasure of learning.
We want our children to be emotionally confident people, who think and act independently, that have the right tools to be capable in the future and to communicate, research, create, reflect, think and that make a commitment to society based on the values they have developed.
What parents say about us
that make their mark
The educational project EMPREMTA represents our commitment to the comprehensive education of our students, and highlights the value of family-school relations as an essential part of students’ educational process, as we believe that parents are the main educators and need to work with teachers and other education professionals.
The Empremta project revolves around 5 points:
All these points will impact on the student and make them discover their own potential, helping them to discover the values that need to guide our behaviour and that will allow them to be an active, responsible and fully integrated member of society.
