Spring School 2020

April 13-16, 2020

The ACS Spring School is the perfect place for your 6 – 13 years old child to spend the spring vacation. Children all over Bulgaria come here to study English, make friends, feel the ACS culture and have a week of fun. All subjects from our program are taught in English. We offer a total immersion into an English-language environment.   

Children are divided into groups according to their level of English knowledge and age. Absolute Beginners are also welcome to the Spring School. Our native level teachers in English have the highest international qualifications and thorough experience with children of all ages. 

Our daily program from 9:30 am until 4:30 pm combines learning English with exploring the ACS century-old park in the Nature Science classes and a lot of movement in the Sports classes. A creative sketch in our Drama classes is sure to make you both laugh and cry will make the kids love the spring school even more.

The American College of Sofia provides all learning materials. Lunch and afternoon snacks are served at the College cafeteria. A medical team is also available on site.

English: This year, the minds of our spring school participants will spend four fiercely exciting days deep within the African jungle, roaming with lions, hyenas, mandrill monkeys, and wild birds.

Attendants will greatly enhance their reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills through an exhilarating world-famous digital story. Themes of destiny, hope, and betrayal will have our participants mesmerized.

Drama: Kids love Drama. They are born actors. Drama contributes substantially to the development of skills that the children are going to need throughout their entire lives. Speaking, behavior in front of an audience, team work, and presentation skills are among the abilities that we will master in our drama classes. In addition, it’s really fun and children enjoy it immensely.

On the last day of our spring school a short creative sketch will be performed by all participants: The rich and luscious forest home of a quirky family of animals is one day interrupted by a party of reckless fools. How can a group of fluffy critters possibly get rid of their uninvited guests?   

The Natural Science classes will take the children to the ecosystem of jungles and their animal life… 

Sports classes will offer a variety of jungle-themed sports - obstacle courses, orientation, dancing, etc.
