HISTORY AND HERITAGE

Colegio Menor is a private, bilingual school of English and Spanish, founded in 1995 under the principles of goodness, beauty, and truth.


We began in the city of Quito and later expanded to include the Samborondón campus in the city of Guayaquil in 2013. Colegio Menor is proud to be a part of the Nord Anglia Education family of schools.


Colegio Menor fulfilled the founders’ dream of offering a bilingual liberal arts education and has quickly become one of the most renowned schools in the nation. Our liberal arts program was inspired by Universidad San Francisco de Quito, and today, our educational offerings are shaped by the best teachers in the world.
