About the institution
The European College was founded in 2002 by a family of educators who had been known for their tutorial and cultural activities in Ukraine for more than 100 years. Realizing the discrepancy between the outdated model of the Soviet school and the new challenges of the time, having acquired the experience and clear vision of the new Ukrainian school model, they took a decision to create a new educational institution.
The school started its activity with 12 children and each year increased the number of their pupils. Now 320 students from grades 1 to 11 study at school. Collegium has no branches, it is the only and unique school of a new type.
About the educational process
The educational process at school promotes the disclosure of potential opportunities and personal qualities of students, develops motivation for learning, responsibility for others, helps to form independent critical thinking, to show respect and aptness to cooperate with people around.
