Established in 1996 and based in the heart of Milan, St. Louis is a leading co-educational day & boarding international school that teaches 1,600 students between the ages of 2 and 18 years old.

Our school is a member of Inspired Education group, the leading global premium group of schools that offer excellence in education to over 75,000 students worldwide. From exchange programmes to exclusive camps, to leadership conferences and shared learning experiences, Inspired offers a range of enriching global opportunities which give students a chance to travel, meet peers from other countries and become a part of a vibrant international community.

Located across three different sites, our south-eastern campus is comprised of an Infant, Primary and Middle School, whilst our High School, located in the Palazzo Archinto, neighbours the Duomo. The historic grounds of this high school, designed in the 17th century by architect Francesco Maria Richini, provide the students with the perfect learning environment, as it combines state-of-the art facilities with a richness of craft and culture. Our third site is the Colonna campus, situated in the North-east of Milan. This campus offers an education for 2-14 year olds as well as full time boarding accommodation for 14-18 year olds.

The St. Louis School's academic programme is rigorous and challenging. The Infant School programme is based on the British Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum. Primary and Middle School follow the British National Curriculum and, at the age of 6 onwards, also have the option to follow the Italian curriculum. High School is comprised of IGCSE examinations for Years 10-11 followed by the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB) for Years 12-13.

This approach reinforces the importance of creative and critical thinking and allows for the development of independent learners who are well equipped to succeed in the IB and their journey beyond. St. Louis consistently achieves outstanding academic results with the highest average IB diploma score in continental Europe seven years running; our average score for the past 8 years of students is a 37 out of 45.
