Being the world’s 8th largest country, Argentina is home to diverse landscapes that range from regions of snowcapped mountains and lakes to rainbow colored rock formations and beautiful coastlines. Sharing a rich social culture, family and friends are really important. Argentineans love spending time outdoors to talk, drink mate and eat an asado (Argentinian barbeque). Argentina offers a friendly and welcoming environment that helps students integrate into their new life.

School Life

Schools have one of the following orientations: humanities and social sciences, economy, biology and art. Friendship is important at schools because students have the same classmates since grade 8 and teachers encourage cooperative and group-work. Schools give many opportunities to socialize with the classmates. 

School day is from 7.45 am to 1 pm and two afternoons per week. 

The school year starts late February and finishes in mid-December.
