The extra-curricular programme provides a variety of opportunities for creative expression and the development of new skills.


Physical exercise and a healthy lifestyle have a natural place in the UWC movement’s holistic approach to our student’s self-development.


It is the beginning of “making the world a better place” by overcoming barriers and differences in order to help others.

Equality fair



UWC Adriatic has grounded its education on such principles from the outset with its mission to ‘welcome young people at the threshold of adult independence and guide them on the way to being compassionate and conscientious individuals. The UWC educational model and the CAS (Creativity, Activity and Service) element of the IB Diploma Programme make volunteering an essential formative experience for our students. Students are encouraged to challenge themselves through endeavours which push them out of their comfort zone, thus developing empathy, planning skills, independence and a strong sense of responsibility for others’ well-being.
