Embedded in the Swiss and international education system

Swiss families choose Academia Bilingual School because bilingualism is essential in our interconnected world. For many families, a bilingual education is a soft landing into Swiss life and education.

Because we consistently teach bilingually and adhere to both the Basel-Stadt Cantonal Curriculum 21 and the Cambridge International Curriculum, all further educational pathwayss are always open to our students.

We are proud that our former pupils are successful in other school systems and throughout their schooling.

After completing primary school, various pathways are open to our students:

Bilingual secondary school at Academia International School

After primary school, our students can transfer to the bilingual secondary school of Academia International School. This school combines bilingual and project-based teaching in a unique way and prepares students for the English-language secondary school as well as for further education and vocational training in Switzerland or abroad.

The transfer from secondary school to the English-language Gymnasium at Academia International School is exam-free.

This is what this solution offers:
  • Secondary school (Year 7 and 8) with a unique bilingual profile.
  • English-language secondary school:
    Year 9 and 10: broad general education and completion of IGCSEs.
    Year 11 and 12: focus on three to four core subjects.
  • Strong and lively school community, innovative teaching and learning methods, targeted promotion of strengths.

German-language secondary school with a focus

Would you like to send your child to a German-speaking secondary school with an English focus? Then at Academia Primar & Sek in Reinach your child will find a school that makes just that possible.
In the English and Music stream classes, students deepen their skills beyond the curriculum: they are encouraged in their creativity and independence and build up targeted interdisciplinary skills (working in projects and in teams, presentation and organisational techniques).

This is what this solution offers:
  • Secondary School (Years 7 to 9) with an English and/or Music stream
  • Targeted preparation for further education in the Swiss system or an apprenticeship
  • Family atmosphere, committed teaching staff and individual support

Public schools

Thanks to the transfer agreement between the public school and the secondary school of the Canton of Basel-Stadt, our students can transfer to a public secondary school without having to take exams. This minimises the pressure of selection.

This is what this solution offers:
  • Public secondary school (profile P, E or A)
  • Preparation for an apprenticeship or further upper secondary schools (e.g. Gymnasium, Fachmittelschule)
