Urca Site

Our students move to the near by Urca Site for their Secondary education, from the ages of 12 to 18 years.

Botafogo and Urca together form the Zona Sul School, with around 1200 students in total. The Urca Site, purchased in 1999, accommodates all within a 7-storey building and a number of adjoining properties, and is located close to the famous Sugar Loaf, just a short drive from the Botafogo Site.
