Conquer the world without leaving Bauru. It is possible here at FourC.
It is important to study English and this is not new. The world speaks English. However, how to acquire a certificate that validates the level of language proficiency and that is recognized and valued worldwide? How to open the possibilities of a Brazilian student for their globalized, competitive and demanding world?
FourC Bilingual Academy is the first school in Bauru, authorized by a U.S. university, to offer its students in Brazil, the Official High School Program. The partnership is with University of Missouri, one of the top 100 US universities and is also among the 40 best in the country at the College of Education.
Founded in 1839, the University of Missouri (also known as MU or Mizzou) is among the top 100 US universities and serves more than 35,000 students in 280 undergraduate, 84 master’s programs and 66 doctoral. Among the 4,726 existing institutions, Mizzou is among the 62 members of the Association of American Universities (AAU) with institutions such as Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, MIT, NYU, Cornell, Columbia, Brown, UC Berkeley, UCLA and CalTech.
The High School Program
The High School disciplines are offered exclusively when they are not part of the Brazilian curriculum, for example, Public Speech, English Literature, Economics, Health, US History, Government and, in partnership, when they coincide with the Brazilian curriculum, such as Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics and Biology.
The Mizzou High School Program at FourC, begins in the 9th grade, so that the American curriculum disciplines are completed by the 2nd year of high school. Thus, students can engage fully in 3rd year, preparing for the entrance exams.
Ratification of Disciplines
The disciplines in the Brazilian curriculum that correspond to the American curriculum( Chemistry, Mathematics , Biology , Physics etc. . ) are validated by the University of Missouri , so it is not necessary for the student to retake them in English.
