So far, the educational offering is aimed at children from two years old to 14 years old. We are now pleased to introduce the new high school program Who will guide the students to the university.Although this offer represents a new adventure for our school, we are associated with Trieste International School which has been successfully issuing matriculation certificates since 2006 and the contribution of the International School of Trieste was crucial to the opening of our secondary school also in Udine.
Our students will – continue Ridgway – obtain a high school diploma recognized by the Italian Ministry which gives access to any university in Italy and abroad. This is a five-year program at the end of which students will be required to write a research thesis in an area of their choice. There will also be a reduced 4-year program for those studying in countries that only require a 4-year diploma.”
