The 3 possible choices for the education of children in the Principality

The Andorran educational system is divided into three distinct branches, three school systems that you can choose according to your aspirations once expatriated in Andorra:

  • Andorran school and education, founded in 1982 depend on the Andorran Government. 4,000 children are counted in the Andorran education system;
  • Spanish education. Of secular and congregational obedience, it is under the responsibility of the Spanish Administration. It welcomes approximately 3,000 students;
  • French education: specially designed for expatriates from France, it is supervised by the French State authorities and follows the teaching programs issued by the French Ministry of National Education. It is connected to the Montpellier Academy.

Children between the ages of 2 and 18

The Andorran education structure stretches from preschool to high school, depending on the levels:

  • preschool, from 2 ½ years and up to 6 years,
  • primary school,
  • secondary school (college + high school),
  • professional (possible learning from the age of 16).

It should be noted that each of the 7 parishes of Andorra (Canillo, Encamp, Ordino, La Massana, Andorra la Vella, Sant Julia de Loria, Escaldes-Engordany) has at least one primary school.

Secondary schools are located in large cities (Andorra la Vella or Escaldes-Engordany).

From kindergarten to high school in Andorra, the education system is perfectly integrated into the history of the country of the Principality. The first schools appeared in 1900 and their functioning has constantly evolved to reach an excellent level.
