High quality sports and international academics
As of 1st September, thanks to the collaboration between Rivers International School Arnhem
and FSG Academy
, teenagers and young adults between the ages of 16 and 19 will have the opportunity to combine top-sports with a renowned international educational programme in the province of Gelderland. The IB (International Baccalaureate) Diploma Programme that the student-athletes follow will enable them to attend high quality tertiary education worldwide.
Student-athletes follow a two-year diploma programme over the course of three years in a so-called Athlete Friendly Education Centre (AFEC), which gives them the opportunity to train and compete whilst completing high quality international education.
Rivers International School provides the full IB programme whilst FSG Academy offers the student-athletes boarding, sports and recreational facilities. The FSG Campus has also a para- medical centre. AFEC, which kicks off in September, will cater for some 280 student-athletes over the period of 4 years.
