Welcome to the Alfagems school
(by its Managing Director)
I extend a warm welcome to you and invite you to explore our website
to discover what makes ours a special school.
The Academy is at an exciting time in its over 10-year history, and
we continue the founding mission of offering outstanding education
to both young women and boys of the 21st century.
As a Catholic, independent school the Academy provides an
outstanding college-preparatory education. Caring teachers, small
classes, a rich and varied curriculum, and lively, enthusiastic
students make the Academy unique.
Along with its quality academic program, the Academy focuses on
character and values, cooperation, mutual respect and service. Our
school is a place where young students learn to listen, question,
challenge, probe and gain the knowledge and confidence that will
allow them to think for themselves and make good decisions. We
believe that excellence in education enables students to value
themselves as individuals, while at the same time, prepares them to
participate with confidence in a complex and changing society.
It is a given that the students at our school will receive an
outstanding academic education, but most important, I value the fact
that the students are surrounded by people who care about them and
care about one another.
