BUCKMINSTER COLLEGE

BC

The three current activities of the Buckminster College are iMartian, an online English language immersion programme for children, the Buckminster Game, an international educational enrichment and adventure programme for teenagers, and the Pearl Divers Seminars for everyone interested in cognitive development and creative individuation in adolescence (ages 10-18).

Our major initiative, the BC High School -an independent, part-boarding/part-remote international high school in Bruges offering an International Baccalaureate MYP and DP curriculum- is a project in development.

iMartian (2022)

Discover Martian English on a daily 15 to 20 minutes basis and build your language skills each day with engaging challenges, in a small group, live, online and accompanied by a professional Buckminster College language instructor. Your little space traveller will discover and explore the English language during one year. Fluent conversational English on a B2 level is the objective.
