About the Group


Albergaria-a-Velha enjoys a privileged geographic situation, located between the sea, the Aveiro lagoon and the surrounding mountains. The Caima and Vouga rivers have always influenced and contributed to the development of the municipality, mainly in agriculture and livestock breeding, as well as in the implementation of industry, especially small and medium scale manufacturing.

The Albergaria-A-Velha School Group is composed of eleven schools and two school centres, spread throughout the area of the municipality. The schools are distributed across different levels of education, providing integrated cover for the educational needs of the child and youth population of the municipality.

Schools from the group

The school group is composed by 6 kindergartens, 4 primary schools, 2nd cycle schools, 2 school centers and a 3rd cycle + secondary school.


So much more than just classes

We are proud to have our projects and clubs recognised by the community. At the Albergaria-a-Velha School Group we want to do much more than just give classes.

When I was in the 9th grade I wasn’t sure what path to follow, then I decided to go for the Computer Science Course at AAV Secondary School. Making the decision to stay at school in Albergaria was the right choice, I learnt a lot throughout the course and I have been able to put it into practice in various internships

TGPSI course student

At AAV Secondary School I completed the TGPSI (IT Management and Programming Technician) course, which gave me many professional opportunities, in an area I’m passionate about. The course opens a lot of doors in the job market, as well as for further studies. I carried out different projects in several companies and took part in several competitions. I’m grateful to the AAV School Group, and the teachers who guided me throughout the course
