The Spanish Baccalaureate is a pre-university qualification after having obtained the ESO (Compulsory Secondary Education Qualification). It is the post-16 stage of education, comparable to the International Baccalaureate.
Adding the two-year baccalaureate program completes the entire K-12 educational cycle and provides the additional education required to enroll in university-level studies. The city of Dénia and the Costa Blanca region need an Alfa & Omega Baccalaureate program. There simply aren’t baccalaureate programs in the area that deliver the same high quality teaching, rigorous academics, and nurturing community that Alfa & Omega provides.
The Colegio Alfa & Omega Baccalaureate will be a two-year college preparatory program serving 60 qualified candidates per year. The proposed project plan includes hiring new faculty, constructing a new classroom building, and renovating the existing dining room, kitchen, and residence halls to meet current code regulations. The renovated residence halls will also allow us to accept boarding students for the first time.

Projected Cost: $1,200,000

What Can I Do?
We need your help to continue our mission of providing world class education, informed and enriched by the Word of God.
