INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE AT CASVI FOOTBALL ACADEMY
International Baccalaureate is an organisation of schools around the world which offers an education framework which is more than just a teaching programme.
- It prepares students for life making them address real-life scenarios from early ages.
- It encourages curiosity for investigation while providing a tailored education.
- It fosters independent thinking and helps students take charge of their own learning, fostering self-discipline and critical thinking to prepare them for their adult life.
- It helps them become aware of cultural differences by means of the learning of new languages, thus allowing them to connect to each other in an ever changing and globalised world.
International Baccalaureate (IB) offers a wide range of international education programmes. These programmes encourage students to achieve their academic and personal goals, which leads them not only to excel in their studies, but also in their personal growth.
In order to implement such programmes, schools must be duly certified. When a school gets certified to offer IB programmes, it is then called an “IB World School”.
Casvi Football Academy gives our players the chance of choosing the International Baccalaureate programme that best suits their current background and future needs, being able to study this programme under the American System in the school Casvi has in Tres Cantos, or under the Spanish System in the school of Villaviciosa de Odón, always under the umbrella of the International Baccalaureate as a worldwide institution.
INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE AND UNIVERSITY ENTRANCE EXAMINATION
The International Baccalaureate has the same validity as the Spanish Bachillerato for the purposes of accessing university and allows for the conversion of the average grade used to calculate the university entrance score. Those students successfully completing the Diploma Programme do not need to take the EvAU [Evaluation for University Entrance] tests. Such programme is so well-regarded internationally that it opens up to them the doors of the best universities in the world.
INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE IN MADRID
Casvi is one of the few schools in Spain which offers all three of the IB Programmes. In fact, in the whole Community of Madrid, there are only 4 schools offering all three programmes, one of them being our school.
That is why choosing our football academy as the place where our players will complete their sports training also guarantees them an education based on the excellence provided by Casvi schools.
