The main aim of secondary and Baccalaureate education is to help our students become men and women with an open-minded and a critical thinking attitude, fomenting the progress and the culture throughout an education based on tolerance and respect.

To attain this, we apply new pedagogical innovations that allow us to accelerate the enrichment rate of our students within a constructivist and affective motivation environment.

We emphasize the following aspects:

  • A curriculum, whose interdisciplinary nature highlights the study of the English language that lets students adopt a multicultural standpoint, an important feature of today´s world.
  • An instruction in values continues to be the core of the convergence and irradiation of all the teaching and learning processes. Both the academic performance and the courteous behavior will be the basic rules in the selection process and the continuity of all members of the institution.
  • Our students´ holistic preparation in content, procedures, and attitudes will help them approve their university entrance examinations.

From tenth grade, our students can opt for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, whose aim is to form learners able to achieve ample and in-depth knowledge in parallel to their physical, intellectual, emotional, and ethical growth.

The main goal is to help our students become open-minded men and women with a critical spirit, educating them in tolerance and respect by fostering progress and culture.

To achieve this, we launch new pedagogical initiatives that will accelerate the pace of enrichment of our students in a constructive and emotionally motivated environment. For this reason, we emphasize the programs of the International Baccalaureate:

  • The Primary School Program (PEP), aimed at students age 3 to 12, enables them to develop and form their opinions, make choices, and take responsibility for their own learning.
  • The Diploma Program, addressed to Baccalaureate students, aims to train learners who achieve an excellent breadth and depth in their knowledge, while growing physically, intellectually, emotionally, and ethically. This program has the recognition and respect of the world’s leading universities.
