American Program
The Campinas region is still growing!
Vinhedo has already become a target for the migration of “paulistanos”, due to the excellent quality of life if offers.
With the enlargement of Viracopos International Airport, which will be one of the most important airports in Latin America, national and multinational companies have come here.  With these companies, families from all over the country and all over the world have also settled their roots in Vinhedo.  Aiming to offer an outstanding education, which can attend to the necessities of Brazilian and foreign families that have settled in the Vinhedo and Campinas region, the board of directors decided to implant an American Style Education and turned Sant’Anna into an International School.
