Established in 1968 by Rafael Vilar Gallego and Ma Begoña Rey de Arteaga, Colegio Maria de Iciar (now MDI International College) stands as a private institution dedicated to providing a comprehensive education that goes beyond academic training. Rooted in the principles of social intelligence and emotional management, our school was founded with the vision of creating a nurturing environment where every child can be themselves and receive the individualized attention they deserve.
Over the years, MDI International College has evolved into a haven for families seeking an alternative school in Valencia for their children—one that prioritizes care, individualized attention, and a unique atmosphere for learning and growth. Our commitment extends beyond traditional education, aiming to prepare students for successful integration into the global, professional, labor, and entrepreneurial spheres.
At the heart of our educational philosophy is the incorporation of innovative and alternative pedagogical experiences, often set amidst the beauty of nature. We take pride in fostering a learning environment that not only imparts knowledge but also encourages creativity, critical thinking, and a love for learning.
MDI International College continues to be a beacon of academic learning and holistic development, providing students with the tools and skills needed to navigate an ever-changing world.
