Boarding school in Catalonia
Learn and live in a Biosphere Reserve
SEK International School Catalunya boarding house is a real home where you can live and learn and learn to live with others. Through an international and enriching experience, where students take advantage of every minute of the day.
The day begins with a good breakfast in the company of other boarders, to enjoy the first lessons with lots of energy.
Boarders are afforded unique learning spaces, sharing knowledge with students and teachers from the five continents, in an enriching and tolerant international environment.
When school is over, following a snack to regain strength, the boarding house begins to fill with life. There is time for everything. When it comes to studying, boarders are provided with support from their teachers and school counsellors to bolster their knowledge in different fields and achieve the best results. And when it comes to enjoying leisure, the boarder’s curricular enrichment programme allows them to fully enjoy their hobbies.
Sports, arts, technological activities … boarders are offered a wide range of activities in the privileged setting of the Montseny Natural Park. In addition, thanks to the proximity to Barcelona, boarders have access to the rich offer of cultural events, sports and entertainment that this magnificent city offers them.

A source of experiences and friendships that will accompany students throughout their lives and will serve to take the first steps towards a future full of success.
