Spanish Government run schools in the U.S.

Spanish Language and Culture Schools (Agrupaciones ALCE)

The Agrupaciones were created to provide complimentary Spanish language and culture courses for students who are unable to access instruction in Spanish language and culture in the country where they study. This instruction takes place outside of the students’ regular school hours, generally in locations granted by the educational institutions of the country of residence. These classrooms are compiled within an organizing structure called the Agrupación de Lengua y Cultura españolas.
The intent of the program is to promote cross-cultural competence by supplementing the full integration of Spanish children in the social environment and school system of their country of residence with a course designed to preserve their cultural identity. The course strives to respect and maintain the language and culture of origin as a means for personal development, while using the resources of both countries for the students’ cultural enrichment.
In the U.S., the Spanish Language and Culture Group Headquarters are based in New York.

Bilingual Schools Sections (Secciones españolas)

The so-called Secciones españolas form part of the Ministry of Education’s language and culture promotion operations abroad. The objective is to extend the access to Spanish-regulated education by integrating it into the respective countries’ educational systems. The Sections create an intercultural educational experience that promotes bilingualism.
The Spanish Sections offer participating students a framework to study Spanish language and culture during regular school hours within the educational system of their country of residence. The Spanish educational system develops the Spanish Language and Literature curriculum, and works in conjunction with the corresponding country to develop and integrate a curriculum for Spanish History and Geography.
In the U.S., the Ministry of Education has two such School Sections established in foreign-owned centers:

UNIS (United Nations International School, New York City (New York)

Miami Dade International Studies Program (PEI), Miami (Florida)
