ASV+ is the official co-curricular activities program at the American School of Valencia. Students at ASV may participate in a variety of athletic teams, STEM, dance, music, and world languages as an co-curricular activity. All of them (except for Français and Deutsch) are instructed in English by expert coaches and teachers within the school day.
Students have the opportunity to train or attend classes throughout the week, but they also play in athletic matches and tournaments. In the case of dance, music and world language activities, perform at ASV community events or other external activities.
An Enriching Experience
The ASV+ program is addressed to ASV students. The list of activities is adapted to each age level and offer an opportunity to practice sports or develop each child’s interest on arts, dance and technology. A key fact is the schedule, as ASV+ activities take place within the school day and do not affect study and resting time at home or family routines such as transportation. Only athletic teams in Middle and High School do have an afternoon training session, as it is recommended for these levels.
ASV+ students enjoy our outstanding facilities and services to have the highest benefit on their time developing their activity. Sports groups use our outdoor school parks, the Athletic Field and the Athletic Center. The Athletic Field is a high-performance artificial turf pitch for both Soccer and Field Hockey. The Athletic Center has rooms for our Dance groups with mirrors, ballet barres, padded floor and acoustic system. The Athletic Court is a high-performance wooden floor court for Volleyball and Basketball. ASV is partnering with Ingenio Kids to offer the STEM activity, which combines educational robotics, coding, and multimedia.
Students have the opportunity to compete representing ASV in local, national and international competitions. Our school takes part in inter school athletic events with other international and bilingual schools in Valencia. Junior Varsity and Varsity Teams travel and play ESC and Iberian League tournaments against other international schools from Spain, Portugal, France, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Morocco, and Algeria.
Families have continuous information on activities and upcoming events for their children and receive two progress reports in December and June. For our young ones there are specific open events to come and join in their child’s activity (Open House events). Dance activities participate in the Christmas Concert and also have a special show at the end of the school year in which language activities also participate.
Activities in 2021-2022
The COVID-19 regulation protocols for schools in 2021-2022 (Criterios de organización para el curso 2021-2022), officially announced on June 3, 2021, by Generalitat Valenciana, the Valencian regional government, affects the way ASV is able to offer ASV+ activities in all divisions. As soon as we have the new plan, activities will be listed here and the registration form will be open again.
