academia Bilingual School academia Bilingual School Basel is an international, bilingual all-day school. Our school programme extends from kindergarten to university entrance qualification. Teaching in kindergarten, in primary school and at the secondary level is provided half in German and half in English, with English predominating at college. Our teaching focuses on our students and their individual needs. Our curriculum is based on the UK Cambridge International Curriculum as well as the ofﬁcial curriculum of the respective Canton (“Lehrplan21”, the obligatory period of schooling).
Our university entrance qualification is recognised by international and Swiss universities.
Kindergarten In our bilingual kindergarten, children develop their reading, writing and numeracy skills as well as their decision-making, learning and social competencies. Native speaker teachers create individual work and activities based on the child’s strengths and talents. The child learns the new language in guided learning sequences and in supervised playing phases
Primary school Our teaching concept is based on immersion and advancement of talents and gifted children. A German-speaking teacher in a German-speaking learning environment during one half of the week alternates with an English-speaking teacher in an English-speaking learning environment during the other half of the week. The children study in small classes according to an individual work plan, which focuses on their individual talents and strengths.
Secondary school Our bilingual pre-college secondary school prepares students for admission to our English-language college or other further education schools. Knowledge, abilities and skills are consolidated and extended in lessons structured according to specific subjects. Abstract thinking and learning becomes more significant due to the general and cognitive development of the students, while they continue to learn through concrete actions and situations. Interdisciplinary competences are strengthened and trained consistently. Attitudes and approaches are reflected upon, helping students to learn independently and responsibly.
College In our English-language college, students are prepared for the international university entrance qualification (A levels) in four years. Students who are at the stage just before gaining the Swiss university entrance qualification (Matura) can complete the qualification in two years.
