´Erdsummer´ A Montessori Summer Programme for Adolescents (Ages 12-16)
Montessori-Palau is a large Montessori school situated in the city of Girona, in the north-east of Catalonia, Spain. Girona is a city with more than two thousand years of history. It is ideally located, near the Costa Brava with some of the world’s most beautiful beaches. It is also within an hour's travelling distance from Barcelona and France, and the most beautiful scenery the Pyrenees mountains have to offer.
We are offering the international Montessori adolescent community the chance to enjoy a Montessori experience in an exciting new environment with other young people from all over the world.
This programme will enable students to carry out research projects in the following fields of study: biology, history, geography, geology, biogeography or journalism.
Students will also have the opportunity to work on the land, participate in voluntary activities, experience life in the whole school community and learn Spanish among others. Friendly, enthusiastic Montessori-Palau families will welcome you to their homes in order to make your stay in Girona unforgettable.
This three week programme will include cultural visits to places of interest in the surrounding area and sports activities with the host family.
Montessori-Palau is an officially recognised environmentally friendly school situated on the outskirts of the city in more than 500 acres of land. You will be able to walk and relax in our beautiful forest, work on the farm and make use of five specifically equipped buildings. We have over a thousand pupils with an age range from the early months to eighteen years old. All of our primary and elementary teachers are fully qualified AMI guides and this new project was created by secondary teachers trained at The AMI Montessori Orientation to Adolescent Studies, in Ohio.
