Community Service Program
Special Classes and Extracurriculars
As an essential piece of our Liberal Arts program, Colegio Menor offers students the opportunity of enjoying the arts, sports and technology in a different way.
Our Middle School students take mandatory classes in Art, Music, Theater, Physical Education and Technology/STEAM. As they move into High School, they select these classes as electives in order to specialize in their field of talent and exploration. We consider these classes as important as the other academic fields. For this reason, we are proud of our artistic, technological and sports programs, which excel in our community.
Our extracurriculars program also offers our students a great variety of options, which complement their studies with an extra piece of art, academics, sports and technology. These include: UN club, STEAM, Web Page design, Creative Writing, Performing Arts, Cheer Dance, Cooking and a wide variety of sports.
Our Middle School students can participate in one 3-day local trip per year. The objective of these trips is to foster better group relationships and getting to know our country’s beautiful sites in a different way.
As part of Nord Anglia Education, we are also able to offer international trip programs such as expeditions (community service trips in Switzerland and Tanzania), summer experiences (Juilliard and MIT Summer Program) and regional events (Global Games in Orlando–Florida, regional Model UN and annual festivals).
Counseling and Learning Support
Our counselors provide emotional and social support to students, and facilitate small group discussions regarding human sexuality, self-esteem, self-understanding, and self-control. Other topics include substance abuse, stress management, and fostering healthy and functional relationships. We also organize annual one-day retreats for each of our MS/HS grades.
The Learning Support Program offers assistance to those students who need additional help and constant feedback regarding their learning. We acknowledge that all our students learn in different ways and have different and unique abilities and skills. We provide orientation to students, teachers and families with the objective of recognizing academic strengths and applying strategies that will support them throughout the school year. We also guide parents when special diagnosis and differentiation could be needed during learning.
