In our institution, every day is an opportunity to grow, surrounded by a natural environment that inspires learning and awakens curiosity.
Our students explore three languages, enriching their minds, preparing for a globalized world. We teach with passion and dedication, cultivating values such as respect, responsibility, solidarity, honesty, love and commitment accompanied by three important principles: synergy, proactivity and assertiveness.
Our goal is to train not only excellent academics, but also conscious citizens who have a positive impact on society and upright human beings who build a better future today.
Dear educational community, I warmly welcome you to our beloved Colegio Educar with great joy and enthusiasm. As Principal of this institution, it is an honor for me to be able to address each one of you and share the excitement we feel as we begin a new cycle full of learning, growth, and opportunities. Our vision is to train competent and self-confident individuals, capable of functioning in a globalized and multicultural world.
At our Institution, we are proud to offer a bilingual educational methodology, supported by innovative pedagogical practices that are constantly evolving. These methodologies are based on research and international best educational practices. Our goal is to provide our students with a cutting-edge education that prepares them to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
The bilingual methodology that we implement is based on linguistic immersion, where our students have the opportunity to learn and communicate in both languages in a natural and meaningful way. Our highly qualified faculty use innovative pedagogical approaches and appropriate teaching resources to foster the development of language skills, both in oral and written expression, in English as well as in French.
At our school, we not only focus on language acquisition, but also on developing intercultural skills and opening up to new perspectives. Our students have the opportunity to participate in international events, immersion programs to develop digital skills, and extracurricular activities that foster understanding and respect.
In addition to the focus on academic development, at our school we place great emphasis on the reinforcement of values. We believe that education should encompass not only intellectual knowledge, but also the ethical and moral formation of our students. We promote values such as respect, empathy, responsibility, honesty and solidarity, instilling in them a social conscience and a commitment to the well-being of others.
I want to emphasize that, as Principal, my commitment and that of the entire management and teaching team is to provide an excellent education, where each student feels valued, motivated and supported in their learning process. We are here to accompany and guide you in your academic and personal development, creating a safe, inclusive and conducive environment for the comprehensive growth of each of our students. Since 1998 we have sought that all who come to this College come to succeed and to be happy.
I invite you to be an active part of our educational community, to participate in the activities and events that will take place throughout the school year, as well as to maintain open and constant communication with the teaching and administrative staff. Together, we will build a strong path to academic and personal success for our students.
I appreciate the trust you have placed in our beloved Colegio Educar and I reiterate my warmest welcome. I am convinced that this will be a year full of achievements and enriching experiences for everyone. Welcome to our great educational family!
