Established in 1982, UWC Adriatic brings together 190 students from around the world for the final two years of their high school education. Inspired by the ideas of the German educationalist Kurt Hahn, the UWC movement aspires to make education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future. Life at our 100% residential school can be demanding and we are convinced, transformational. Living in rooms of 2, 3 or 4 students in one of our 6 residences scattered throughout the village, co-curricular life is at the heart of the UWC Adriatic experience, with a particular emphasis on service to others. Eighty percent of our students are non-native English speakers yet all study towards the full International Baccalaureate diploma in English. All students also study Italian.
