    About Morris Academy

    Morris Academy, established in 1987, is the first English Language School in Zarautz (and one of the very first in the Basque Country) that systematically gave the option of learning English through Basque and/or Spanish. For more than 20 years, thousands of students have enriched their personal and professional lives through learning English at Morris Academy.

    Moreover, the Morris Academy is the publisher of the leading, if not only, English-Basque Basque-English dictionaries used throughout the Basque Country.

    Our Mission and Philosophy

    At Morris Academy, we know what it takes to learn a language. The founder has dedicated his whole life towards learning languages and uses this experience in teaching his native language, English, to students in Zarautz.

    There are many issues and problems with how some local schools teach English to their impressionable students. To read more about these problems and find out how Morris Academy fixes and improves upon current teaching standards, click the button below.

    Summer Courses in USA

    To supplement our fall, winter and spring courses, Morris Academy also offers its students the option to live with American families with children in the USA for a month or so every summer. For the last 25 years we have traditionally taken students to Utah, but we are proud to announce the addition of a second location for the summer of 2017: the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area (southern Maryland, DC, and Northern Virginia).

    Unlike other summer programs, we take care of all the arrangements, and our own staff (from the owner down to the teachers) are with the students the whole time. To learn more about what makes the Morris Academy USA Summer Program unique, click below.
