The school was founded in 1976 as a private primary school and high school for Spanish youth; two years later, the activities of Colegio Maravillas were extended to include Spanish language and culture courses for foreigners in a separate office in the city centre. Colegio Maravillas has 17 air-conditioned rooms, a library, a computer room, a small cinema room, a terrace and a café.
Colegio Maravillas is accredited by the Cervantes Institute and CSN, as well as the German Bildungsurlaub. During the winter season, it welcomes about 60 students from all over Europe, Asia and the USA, and during the summer this number increases to 200.
All teachers are Spanish and have an academic degree. The curriculum includes the use of audio-visual aids and classes take place in small groups (8 people on average, never more than 10), which allows for an individual approach to each participant. The staff of the school are not only able to communicate in Spanish, but also in English, Italian, French, German and Japanese.
The school offers a wide range of courses for pupils, students and seniors alike, from absolute beginner level to very advanced courses. It also offers different types of accommodation: with a Spanish family, in a flat shared with foreign or Spanish students, in a hotel or a rented flat. All locations are within a short distance from the school and the beach. There is a programme of additional activities every day after class, and twice a week there is a possibility of taking individual Spanish classes. The school also offers online courses.
The city of Benalmadena, where Colegio Maravillas is located, is 12 km from Malaga airport and is well connected with the city centre. In Benalmadena, there are good conditions for many sports, such as tennis, golf, sailing, windsurfing, diving and rollerblading.
