A few years ago, a group of renowned people, businessmen, intellectuals, artists and professionals from different fields, met to discuss how culture and knowledge in Camp de Tarragona and southern Catalonia were progressing. One of the recurring themes was the need to adapt education to the challenges of the globalised world, and the lack of a school with an innovative and international vision and vocation was spotted right away.
As a result, the idea of the Socrates Educa® International School as a civic initiative came about. With enthusiasm, energy, excitement and an abundance of professionalism, a non-profit project was launched that today leaves behind a heritage for society as a whole. In 2007, the Socrates Educa Foundation was set up, which oversaw the founding process and which is today oversees school governance. The building´s first stone was laid in 2011 and, just a year later, on 17th September 2012, the new school opened its doors. The innovative Socrates Educa® International School model has proved to be a success, with very good results having been obtained over the years.
