At the Grand Association College we consider our students as unique individuals and with this in mind, our staff work together to get to know all our students on a personal basis and so help them to improve in all areas of their education. Each student has an assigned personal tutor to guide them and to help them develop as individuals. The personal tutors are fundamental and this is one of the aspects which differentiates us from other schools. Their value is in knowing their students personally and maintaining continuity throughout their educational journey.
The full collaboration of parents is vital to the education of our students. The study habits we encourage inside the school need to be supported at home and in this way we help create students with their own criteria capable of helping to make a more just world and able to make the right decisions in life. At the Grand Association College these goals and principles are shared by parents, students and teachers alike.
The Dual Diploma Program provides our students with the opportunity of gaining both the Spanish and American High School Diplomas at the same time.
The Dual Diploma Program is controlled by the Florida Department of Education and is accredited by The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
The Dual Program is extracurricular. Students need to dedicate between three to four hours a week to keep up with the Program.
The Dual Diploma Program is an online course which includes optional subjects. Students become highly competent users of online academic courses and quickly develop a positive attitude towards their studies.
Normally, students begin the Dual Program in 3 ESO which means that they study the six subjects over four years. Subjects are taught 100% online by highly qualified teachers.
Students communicate with their teachers via video conference, skype and email.
The American High School Diploma gives students direct access to universities around the world.
We have set up the first Schools MBA for Entrepreneurs Gran Asociación at our College
Not everything is memorizing content. With this in mind, we have set in motion the learning of skills and attitudes which prepare us for the challenges of real life.
With the idea of filling the gaps left by our current educational system, we have developed the first Schools Masters in Valencia and the first Mini-MBA for Entrepreneurs Gran Asociación with the collaboration of Keyman Instituto de Talento educational consultants.
This is a pioneer project in Spain and the only one of its kind. It is designed specifically for Sixth Form students, in total 150, with a clear aim: to develop business and entrepreneurial skills and competencies.
Our students receive university-level tuition from the best professionals, university lecturers and business people of renown. The mini-Master consists of 50 hours which includes 20 workshops, 24 entrepreneurial objectives, individual careers guidance and the Gran Asociación Trade Fair for Entrepreneurial Projects, sponsored by businesses and private and public organizations. For this academic year, our students have received a full grant covering all costs.
Students will be awarded a diploma for their Mini-MBA for Entrepreneurs which will be a valuable addition to their CVs. We aim to equip our students with the life skills and competences they are going to need both at university and in work environments through the realization of real business projects and start-ups.
Our best projects will compete in national and European competitions and we will win. This project is all about educational innovation at the service of our students, teaching staff and families of the Gran Asociación College.
