Xabia International College is the only international school in Javea for students from 2 to 18 years. The school was founded in 1994 to provide a quality education based on the English National Curriculum, within an international environment. The school comprises Firs Foundation, Primary and Secondary sections, taught on three sites. We offer continuity of education from Nursery to University.
Our commitment to small class sizes enables us to provide a personal and individual education for every child.
The current roll of approximately 280 students is made up of children of some twenty nationalities. We offer them a broad education here at XIC. The school is fully authorised to admit students of all nationalities and to convalidate their studies in line with the Spanish Education System. Teaching Spanish language and culture is an important part of the curriculum throughout the school.
We strongly believe in working closely with parents in the best interests of all our students, including liaising with our Parents and Teachers Association, ‘The Friends of XIC’.
FIRS FOUNDATION – 2 TO 5 YEARS
Our recently established Firs Foundation offers children from 2 to 5 years a varied curriculum, in a bilingual environment, stimulating the acquisition of both Spanish and English from a very early age. The spacious and newly refurbished premises include large outdoor play areas, fully equipped classrooms as well as a brand new kitchen and dining room. In line with XIC’s philosophy, small class sizes and a family atmosphere are maintained on this new site, the school’s third in Javea.
PRIMARY SCHOOL – 5 TO 11 YEARS
Set in a beautiful location with spectacular sea views, the Primary school is approximately 5 minutes from Firs Foundation and 2 minutes from the Secondary school. The family atmosphere encourages the individual development of children of all nationalities. Commitment to small classes enables our qualified and dedicated teachers to foster personal and academic development, enabling children to achieve their full potential in a supportive environment. Attractive, well resourced classrooms, together with excellent ICT facilities, provide a wonderful learning environment.
The Secondary site is only minutes from the centre of Javea and some 400 metres from the Mediterranean Sea. Teaching rooms are clustered around a central courtyard with a separate playground to the rear. Small class sizes promote an atmosphere in which effective teaching and learning can thrive. We offer First Language Programmes in Spanish and German in addition to the broad and balanced English National Curriculum. Exam results are excellent and compare favourably with other non-selective independent schools elsewhere in Europe. Virtually all our sixth form leavers proceed to University, mainly in the UK, Germany and Spain.
