ACADEMIA In Spain academias are private schools catering for students of all ages and levels outside normal school and working hours. Some specialize in particular skills such as computing, languages and music while others offer extra tuition in core school subjects and syllabuses. For people hoping to do well enough in the oposiciones to get a post in the public sector, there are academias offering special preparatory courses for these notoriously difficult competitive examinations.
