Since 2001, the Ministry of Education has recognized the centuries old comprehensive musical training that takes place at the Escolania de Montserrat. It considers the Escolania a private educational center with basic art education. Through an agreement with the Generalitat of Catalonia, part of the expenses of the school are covered by the government.
This agreement as an integrated learning institution allows the students of Montserrat to combine both their general studies with music education and active participation in the choir.
At the end of a student’s time at Montserrat, they can continue their musical education at any Music Conservatory or Music School.
