Italian System of Education

Education in Italy is primarily organized on a State- based system. There is a Central Ministry of Education, Ministero dell’Istruzione, Universita’ e Ricerca (MIUR) and Regional Administration Offices which regulate the functioning of the local schools, from kindergarten to high school level, closely depending on MIUR.

From the 3-year-kindergarten path through the 5-year-elementary level to the 8-year-secondary level, which includes the 3 –year- middle school section and the 5-year-high school section.

Differently from the Canadian system high school in Italy does provide different paths.

Just to mention some. Liceo Classico,which concentrates on classical subjects like Latin and Greek; Liceo Scientifico more based on Maths, Physics and Science; Liceo Linguistico dealing with the learning of three foreign languages to choose.
Technical schools include programs of Business and Administration but also Agriculture and Building Construction.
In addition there are vocational courses according to Regional or State programs.
Education is compulsory till 18 years of age; after 16 years of age a student can decide to continue his studies in the vocational paths.
To find more details please consult MIUR site.

The Canadian citizens who need to go to Italy and work there must know that by law schools in in Italy have to enrol all the students from the age of 6 to 18 anytime they arrive in the country.
The students will be accepted and included in classes according to their age. The school fee is voluntary, but at the secondary level all the textbooks are to be bought by each student.
It is advisable to refer to the local Ufficio Scolastico Territoriale (UST) to get to know about the nearest school to your residence. If you go to MIUR site, you can find the UST where you are based.
In metropolitan areas there also Catholic schools and some International schools. Catholic schools receive some funding from MIUR, whereas the latter are private institutions.

 

Scambi, parternariati e soggiorni


La possibilità di effettuare scambi tra il Canada e l'Italia durante la scuola secondaria superiore si sviluppa attraverso tre modalità principali:
 

  • Programmi offerti da agenzie specializzate, tra cui Intercultura (AFS), EF, Interstudioviaggi, MondoinsiemeSTS, WEP.
  • Gemellaggi o altre iniziative condotte tra singoli istituti, nell'ambito dell'autonomia scolastica.
  • Istituzioni locali, come il Centro Scuola di Toronto, che permette di svolgere un semestre scolastico in Italia, oltre a programmi estivi su vari livelli.


Sul sito del Ministero dell'Istruzione, dell'Università e della Ricerca è possibile cercare tutti gli istituti scolastici italiani statali e paritari.

Si raccomanda di prestare particolare attenzione al riconoscimento del periodo di studio effettuato all'estero.
