High-performance sports

For those who, as well as being great students, are true champions

Why it is unique

Because the students that are part of this programme not only perfect the technical and physical aspects of sports practice.

As future elite athletes, they must also develop basic media skills, speaking correctly in public in both national and international environments.

The SEK Educational Model will provide them with the necessary tools to tackle these challenges successfully, acquiring skills in languages, expression and public speaking.

Who is it aimed at

This programme is aimed at young athletes between the ages of 10 and 18 who practice a sport professionally or semi-professionally and that therefore:

  • Have to devote part of their day to training.
  • Require specific physical and psychological preparation, different from other boarders.
  • Participate in various competitions, events, tournaments
  • Must combine their studies and training obtaining the best academic and sporting results.
  • Require flexibility to meet their commitments.
  • Need support in the development of their sporting career: SEK INTERNATIONAL SPORTS ACADEMY

*Although the minimum age for SEK boarders is 11, in the case of students on the SEK International Sports Academy programme, children from 10 years of age are admitted, in order to offer them the necessary support in their sports career.
