Welcome to World Academy of Tirana
The World Academy of Tirana is an international school in the heart of Albania that offers the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme. WAT is authorized for the IB Primary Years Program (PYP) and a candidate school for the Middle Years Programme (MYP).
A pre-elementary class introduces the IB Primary Years Programme (ages 5-11). After completion of our PYP Program, students may continue at WAT in our Middle School Program (ages 11-15).
Now known as WAT, the school 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 Tirana to offer an internationally recognized program leading to a globally accepted qualification. At the school, children from the expats community mix naturally with Albanians to create a truly cosmopolitan mix, all speaking English. Language support is available for non-English speaking children who join the school. The school is exceptionally well resourced and offers a very targeted, focused education based around individual needs.
*World Academy of Tirana is a candidate school for the Middle Years Programme (MYP). WAT is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that 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.
