The four-year experimental curriculum
Vittoria High School has the honour of being chosen by the Italian Ministry of Education as one of 200 institutions participating in an innovative scheme in education, thanks to which our students will be able to complete high school in one year less than traditional educational Italian pathways. The experimental project started in the school year 2018/19 and was confirmed for a new cycle starting in September 2022 and is scheduled to continue in the following years.
This new curriculum simply entails reducing the duration of a student’s educational career to 12 years, while in Italy it usually lasts 13. This allows our students to access university at the same time as their international peers. For this reason and by relying on its extensive experience in international education, Vittoria High School has readily implemented the experimental curriculum.
We are now one of the five Piedmont institutions authorised to offer the four-year option.
The total duration of the programme has been shortened by extending the school year, which starts in the very first days of September and finish at the end of June. The weekly scheduled hours have been slightly increased, with one or two afternoon sessions added.
