Opening of International School on Corfu

New Topic Newest First

Our aim is to start an International School in Corfu that will follow the IB (International Baccalaureate) program and to operate the school in partnership with the ISA (International School of Athens).

The purpose of the programme is to foster an international environment where English is taught as a first language and thus becomes the operating language of the school, but where also all pupils get tuition in the native language, in this case Greek.

The IB program is recognised all over the world, and of course also in Greece where the IB education also gives you a Greek “Apolitirio”, that grants you entry into Greek universities.

Students that graduate under the IB program are graded under the IB point-system which is recognised by the vast majority of the worlds Universities, thus making various entrance exams (like the Cambridge Language Examinations) and test years unnecessary.

The school will offer top quality teachers and recognised/experienced staff in its leadership positions. Classes will be limited to 15 students only in order to ensure a strong focus.

As the success of this initiative will be down to the interest shown by the population of Corfu we would like to invite you to take part in a basic survey in order for us to gage interest and to take the first steps towards a feasibility study.

If you would want to have more information, and/or have interest to send your child to the school, please reply to this post or send email to :
Please understand, that at this point, the final decision to open the school has not been taken as we are at the stage of a feasibility study.

Hi Alex
I appreciate that with the pandemic your plans will likely have been delayed. However, I wonder if you are able to please provide an update on the outcome of the feasibility study and whether the school is likely to go ahead. Our children are 5 and 7 and we would like to know whether Corfu could be an option for us to relocate to - an international school being top of our ‘must have’ list.
Thank you in advance

An International School on Corfu sounds wonderful! Although the recent pandemic may have slowed this plan down, I do hope it is still in the works. I would love to know how it is going, I am a teacher in the U.S. with an ESL license and Master's degree. I would welcome the opportunity to be considered as a teacher with your school should your doors open. I do hope there is progress with your dream to start this school. I also have a 14-year old daughter who would be interested in attending. I look forward to hearing from you! Laura
