English schools in Europe
At CCI, the Renaissance School, we unite the advantages of a Canadian education with the sophistication of private schools in Europe.
CCI debuted among Europe's private schools as the first private school in Italy to offer a Canadian high school program. CCI prepares students for entrance to universities in the U.S.A., U.K., Canada and Europe. Since its founding, CCI has grown to be a unique source of highest-quality English-language private school education.
Graduates from CCI have earned acceptances and scholarships to major universities worldwide such as Queen's, McGill, Toronto, Victoria, Dalhousie, Alberta, Illinois, Southern California, Bond (Australia), among other universities.
CCI students walk in the same streets, fields, and buildings as the pre-Etruscans; Pompeiians and Romans; emperors and popes; Raphaels and Michelangelos; and in the same footsteps, they are surprised to learn, as resistance heroes and war dead from their own era and nations.
CCI makes its home in Lanciano, an ancient-yet-modern, safe, well-serviced small city of 40 000 in eastern Abruzzo. About 15 minutes' drive to the sand or stone beaches of the Adriatic Sea and less than three hours by bus to Rome, it possesses excellent train and bus service to all Italy and Europe. Unlike many private schools, CCI provides boarding for our students. Lanciano has much to share with them.
