We are a state approved private school that incorporates a highly effective academic experience and quality education for all children. This private school goes from nursery to 10th grade providing a challenging academic environment since its establishment in 1982, consisting of the same school directors since then.
Colégio Atlântico with almost 100 students is located in a working class neighborhood in Seixal, a short distance from the capital city, Lisboa. A 20 minute train ride, across the Tagus river will give you access to the cosmopolitan lifestyle of a modern European city with all its social and cultural attractions. But if you prefer a boat ride then in 30 minutes and just a few minutes away, you can walk to the downtown area where many shops and cafés will be at your disposal. Furthermore, not far from our school, in the opposite direction, towards the sunny village of Sesimbra, there are some magnificent beaches, great for hours of fun.
The conclusion remains the same…Colégio Atlântico is a perfect school, binding the closeness of the city and the beaches. A school where the students are provided with rigorous curriculum, instruction, and assessment aligned with the State Standards while being immersed in the arts. The name of our school is attached to our genes, to the Portuguese ability to be entrepreneur, to give new worlds to the world and a culture based on modernity, relying on the freedom of being, of doing and of developing one’s personality in communion with the respect for the freedom of others. Social and environmental awareness and active citizenship are the foundation stones of our educational project. In promoting social and environmental awareness in our students through a Problem Based Learning methodology (PBL), we believe we are providing them with skills and competences that will help them to become active individuals in the pursuit of a more tolerant, cooperative, respectful and environmentally conscious society. Our curriculum is based to upon new technologies with specific subjects where students learn how to use them from both the user and the programmer’s point of view. These tech- savvy is used to enhance communication between parents, students and teachers making it a modern and tech-friendly school.
