In the spring of 2014, a team of professionals and educators came together with the desire to see a Christian school started in Tres Cantos. These individuals began volunteering their time and expertise to develop a business plan and research the educational laws and requirements for starting a school from scratch. They founded the non-profit association Christian Schools in Spain (CSS), and together they laid the foundation for the first CSS school, LIFE International School.
LIFE opened its doors in the fall of 2017, offering Preschool through Kindergarten for children ages 3 – 5. In September 2023, LIFE added grades up to 10th, and will continue to add grades until the school offers a full range of education for students 3 – 18 years old. Simultaneously, plans are being made to move LIFE into a purpose-built facility, designed to accommodate the long-term growth of the school.
We are accredited by two international agencies. The first is the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) which brings together more than 24,000 schools around the world and represents more than 5 million students. The second is the Middle States Association (MSA). In addition, LIFE is accredited by the Spanish Government as a Foreign School in Spain and is an authorized center by the Community of Madrid with No 2878353.
