ASC: MEETING POINT FOR OUR FORMER STUDENTS

Video Marc y Feliu ASC alumni

At Sánchez-Casal Academy, we do love to welcome our former students. Many of them visit us, especially during summer, and come to enjoy what was their second home for a while. The academy becomes a meeting point for former colleagues, who now live far from each other, but who take advantage of their holiday to meet again on the court. They also visit us to train, to keep fit or to improve aspects of their game with their former coaches.

Marc Feliu and Diego Herrera, from Class of 2018, visited us this summer and shared their time and experiences with us.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE AN IB PYP WORLD SCHOOL?

ESIS colaborative planning

This past July, our Elementary School received confirmation of acceptance as an IB PYP World School. We are very proud of the accomplishments mentioned on our report. In many areas we were delighted to read that we exceeded IB’s expectations and were commended for our dedication to the program. The following are key statements taken directly from our commendation list.

ESIS Students Excel on AP Exams

Santiago Diaz and Jordan Hunte, rising seniors at ESIS, study in preparation for a test. They were among 66% of the students at ESIS who took Advanced Placement exams this year.

Scholar-athletes at ES International School-Naples taking Advanced Placement exams this year performed at very high levels, in several classes beating their peers across the world.

Our IB PYP Journey has Just Begun…

ASC has always been synonymous on a world scale with excellence in athletic training. Together with ES International School, student-athletes can pursue high-performance sports training without compromising their academics. In 2017, the ESIS/ASC Board of Directors considered the question: how can we ensure we’re also providing the best quality education available for our youngest students? This was the beginning of our journey to becoming an IB World School for the Primary Years Program (PYP).

RETURN TO TRAINING PROGRAM

At Academia Sánchez-Casal Barcelona, we want to return to training as soon as possible, and also as safely as possible. For this reason, we have designed a specific plan that will facilitate the recovery of the physical and mental conditions of our annual, semester and monthly program players. After the period of confinement and inevitable disruption to the usual training sessions this has caused, we understand that each player will have unique and individual needs.

Letter to our Class of 2020, by Jennifer Ferrara

Jennifer Ferrrara Graduation speech

You are the class of 2020 and we are now all separated and isolated and in countries far flung and near. We are living a moment in history that your children and grandchildren will read about in text books. You are on the cusp of adulthood in a time that now more than ever needs leaders, creative thinkers, scientists, artists, activists, etc. You are the people who need to face what will be left as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic – the economic and political ramifications that will be with us for a very long time.

A successful day for ES international school

ES international school was getting ready for the visit of the Middle State’s Association of colleges and schools. For our ES international school in Florida, the visit of the Middle State’s Association is really important because is a voluntary, peer-based, non-profit association that performs peer evaluations and regional accreditations of public and private schools in the Mid-Atlantic United States and certain foreign institutions of American origin.

LET YOUR CHILDREN FOLLOW THEIR DREAMS

SUB 12_71_ep

One day, our children might tell us that they want to be a professional tennis player. And we realize that yes, they have talent. But we know how difficult it is to become a professional athlete. Pursuing their dream will take many hours of their leisure time and also many hours of study. Could it be worth to try it out? Or do we have to push this idea out of their minds?

AFTER 20 YEARS, WE ASK OURSELVES WHO WE REALLY ARE

Normally it is very difficult to talk about yourself, but tennis gives players the habit of having to review ourselves, to find out what are our areas of improvement, and makes us create new habits to reach our goals. I love this process and I try to do it personally every now and then. I’m a coach, and therefore I need to be coached and coach others.

After 20 years of making opportunities in tennis and education and being a world renowned academy in Europe, I tried to apply the same process to our Tennis Academy and School, ASC and ESIS.
