Welcome to World Academy of Tirana

The World Academy of Tirana (WAT) is an international school in the capital of Albania that offers the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme. WAT is an IB World School (IB school code: 006795).

WAT is authorized to provide the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) (ages 5-11). After completion of the PYP Programme, WAT students continue to our IB Middle Yeas Programme (MYP) (ages 11-15). WAT is a candidate school for the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP). Furthermore, WAT will soon pursue the IB Diploma Programme (DP) candidate status (ages 16-18).

WAT is recognized for its wonderful balance of learning through discovery, with academic rigor introduced gradually at the right age and stage. WAT is the only international school in Albania to offer an internationally recognized programme such as the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme leading to a globally accepted qualification. At WAT, children from the expat and local communities mix naturally to create a truly cosmopolitan, intellectual and English learning environment. Language support is available for non-English speaking attending children. The school is exceptionally well resourced and offers a focused, inquiry-based international education through maintaining the highest standards, quality and integrity.


“International Baccalaureate (IB) World Schools share a common philosophy – a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that we believe is important for our students. Only Schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its three academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), or the Diploma Programme (and in addition the IB Career-related Certificate). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.”
