EARJ currently has two campuses in the city of Rio de Janeiro: the Gávea Campus (since 1971) and the Barra Campus (since 2014).
The 12-acre site has over 700 students and is located at the edge of Tijuca National Forest on a hill overlooking Rio’s famous landmarks, such as the Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, Guanabara Bay, Sugar Loaf and Christ the Redeemer. The tropical climate provides lush vegetation, abundant flowering shrubs and trees throughout the school grounds, as well as wildlife native to the tropical forest.
With over 400 students, the Barra Campus is located in the heart of Barra da Tijuca neighborhood, surrounded by a pleasant residential area. We have a state-of-the-art building, with modern installments and wide locations to comfortably accomodate its community.
EARJ has increasingly adopted green practices in several school matters. This commitment carries through how we manage our both campuses.
The Barra Campus was built with modern architecture that aims to provide sustainable solutions and better energy use. At Gávea, with the Tijuca Forest National Park almost as our backyard, we are privileged to share our days with a myriad of tropical fauna and flora, and to supply our drinking fountains with natural, clean water sources.
As we continue to move forward with the Master Planning for the EARJ centenary, all our building projects will follow a specific protocol for sustainable construction.
