The International School of Catalunya (ISCAT) opened its doors for the first time in 2007 in La Garriga, with a mission to offer both local and international families in the Barcelona region a values-based and dynamic education for their children. Their new campus, due to open September 2019, is currently under construction at the stunning seaside town of Canet de Mar, on the fringe of the Costa Brava. ISCAT Maresme initially welcomes students from Year 1 to Year 9 (approximately ages 5 to 13) with growth planned through to Year 13 in the coming years. As a British International School, they follow the National Curriculum of England and Wales. This new venture opens up the ISCAT experience to those residing on the Costa Brava and Maresme, with school transport from strategic points provided. Canet de Mar is a well-known beachside town on the Costa Brava, 30 minutes away from Barcelona. The town is known for being the summer home of architect Lluís Domenech i Montaner and for its many beautiful modernist buildings.
