Physical training: resistance, flexibility, speed, strength and coordination.
The objective of these examinations is to make the students familiar with the various exam situations and to stimulate them to reach the high international standards. We prepare them for the following examinations:
ICE – International Certificate of Education.
IGCSE – International General Certificate of Secondary Education.
The IGCSE is an internationally acknowledged study plan as well as an examinations system, which was exclusively designed by UCLES (University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate) for the secondary level with the objective of promoting a high academic standard through a dynamic and practical approach to learning.
Advanced International Certificate of Education
AICE – Advanced International Certificate of Education
A / AS – Advanced / Advanced Subsidiary Levels
The AICE, (Advanced International Certificate of Education) Diploma offers a pre-university evaluation system intended for Senior 4 and Senior 5 students who wish to prepare to sit the subjects corresponding to A /AS levels. The AICE Diploma includes three great curriculum areas: Mathematics & Science, Language and Arts & Humanities.
Progetto Linguia Italiana Dante Alighieri
International Exam in italian language endorsed by Dante Alighieri.
St. Martin’s offers vocational counselling to its students, starting halfway through Senior 4 and ending halfway through Senior 5.
This process provides a space for reflection, self-knowledge and for seeking the information that will help the students make a truly personal choice.
The point is to encourage the task of learning to make choices by promoting an independent and responsible attitude in each student.
Senior 5 students participate in the “Partners for a day” programme, organised by Junior Achievement. They also visit different higher studies centres, such as the UCA (Argentinean Catholic University, the UADE (Argentinean Business Studies University), the Austral University, the ITBA (Buenos Aires Institute of Technology) and the UBA (University of Buenos Aires), taking advantage of the various services these centres offer, such as talks, conferences and Open Days.
These outings give a glimpse of university life and academic level and help reduce the anxiety produced by the unknown.
Agreements with Universities
At St. Martin’s, we have two types of agreements with universities.
