Centre International d'Antibes (CIA), founded in 1985, is today the leading language school in France specializing in teaching French as a foreign language. It offers year-round courses for adults, children and adolescents, family programs and summer language camps in various cities of the country: Antibach / Juan-les-Pins, Cannes, Hyeres, as well as with the support of partner schools in Paris, Nice and Biarritz.

The centre is accredited by the French government: it has the so-called quality mark FLE - a commission of three ministries of the country (higher education and science, culture and foreign affairs), which is engaged in certification of language schools. It is recognized by EAQUALS, the European Association for the Control of the Quality of Language Learning. CIA is also a member of SOUFFLE. This is an association of 16 language schools in France, Switzerland and Monaco, each of which is committed to providing customers with only the highest quality services.

The centre annually trains about 7000 students of 30 different nationalities.

Centre International d’Antibes is located in Antibes (75 thousand inhabitants) - a delightful resort town on the Cote d'Azur between Nice and Cannes. Sandy beaches, 300 sunny days a year, an abundance of flowers and greenery, a fun friendly atmosphere attract students from all over the world. All the sights of the French Riviera are nearby. In addition to the beauty of the landscape and architecture, the world jazz festivals, sailing regattas and all kinds of water sports competitions held here bring particular pleasure.

The city is located 10 kilometres from Cannes, 18 kilometres from Nice Airport and an hour's drive from Saint-Tropez. Antibes, together with the cape of the same name and the resort of Juan-les-Pins, form a single administrative unit.

The CIA centre in Antibes has two buildings. In spring and autumn, children study at a primary school, Le Chateau. It is located just a few minutes on foot from the centre of Antibes, on a hill with stunning views of the sea and the old city.
