WELCOME TO CIV!
The Vilamoura International School (Colégio Internacional de Vilamoura - CIV) is the most prestigious educational institute (Pre-school, Primary School and Secondary School) in the South of Portugal, encompassing the Portuguese National, British (adapted) National and the Cambridge International curricula.
CIV is located in a unique natural environment, with a recreational space of about 18,500m2. It has developed an educational model over the last 30 years that invests in the early learning of foreign languages (Portuguese, English, French, Mandarin, Russian and German), research programmes, the development of mathematical thinking and the promotion of the arts, sports, democratic values and educational priorities supported by humanistic values.
“More than a school, CIV was my second home: a place where I learnt basic principles of courtesy and social behaviour.”
Adriana Correia, finalista 2006
“Being a student at Vilamoura International School led me to understand various perspectives and share experiences with colleagues from many other countries.”
Kieran Lyaman, finalista 2010
“At CIV we meet people from all over the world. CIV was more than a school, it provided the stepping stones that allowed me to become more demanding of myself and create personal challenges.”
Loris Stabile, finalista 2001
“The fact that we learn other languages besides Portuguese and English is excellent! The opportunity of interacting well with international students and teachers prepares us to deal with the culture shock when we move from one country, or even one continent, to another.”
Philipp Eckert, finalista 2006
“From an early age I was enveloped in an international environment, surrounded by colleagues from various nationalities, which certainly broadened my understanding of the world …”
José Cravo, finalista 2006
“Being a student at CIV was a fulfilling experience that shall be with me for the rest of my life. I am extremely proud of having been a student of CIV.”
Bruno Lopes, finalista 1998
