American College Innovative Lab (ACIL) is a non-traditional, inquiry-guided and dynamic American international school for 7th-12th grade students in Valencia, Spain. ACIL prides itself on its innovative, diverse and student-centered learning pedagogy.
ACIL is centrally situated within the city, granting easy access to various public transportation options.
The core academic curriculum comprises accredited US courses, all instructed in native English. Students graduate when completing the 12th grade. They then receive an official American High School Diploma, which allows them to attend international universities throughout the world.
ACIL maintains a small student-teacher ratio, fostering an open and vibrant atmosphere that propels students to excel not only academically but also socially and emotionally. A distinct feature of the school is the encouragement of interaction among students from diverse grade levels and nationalities, resulting in a remarkable fusion of ideas.
ACIL offers an extensive range of enriching components and transformative experiences throughout the academic year. These encompass a diverse array of social and creative activities, fostering friendships while igniting creativity. Our students learn from influential international speakers, gaining invaluable insights from visionaries across the globe.
|Teaching approach of the school||
At ACIL, we approach learning through the Inquiry-Based Learning Model which relies upon the idea that students are able to learn by investigating scenarios and problems, and through social experiences. Rather than having to memorize information from printed materials, students conduct investigations that quench their curiosity, deepen their knowledge base, develop their hard and soft skills and broaden their perspectives.
