Self-discipline is a Key to Success

At Santa Clara, we follow the Spanish international curriculum with multilingualism. In Secondary School, fifty percent of the classes are taught in English and the rest are in Spanish (Catalan, unless students are proficient in Spanish).
This stage is fundamental for students to experiment in different academic subjects and discover multiple non-academic skills. They have to discover strengths by working on subjects and new skills. The more they discover, the more they know themselves. This knowledge will allow them to make decisions in terms of their strengths, impact, and contribute to their world.
In this stage, we work on self-discipline in order to enhance self-study. students learn discipline to plan their day to day studies with studying techniques. Discipline makes them more autonomous and responsible to get the best results in their exams.
We want our students to enjoy learning but also to work on their academic skills. That is why perseverance is key for their academic success.
Sports have an important role in this stage because daily practice allows our students to increase their focus in class.
We encourage them to play an instrument as well because by doing so, the plasticity of their brains increases and they develop more creativity and mental agility. Learning different languages in an international community enriches their knowledge and keeps growing their mindset.
