Social-consciousness formation

Our students are linked throughout the school year to different foundations such as Asodisvalle, Asopanid, Blind and Deaf Children’s Institute, Dapa Ardillitas Kindergarten, among many others. Through these experiences we seek that our students recognize themselves through the other and that from a privileged place, they find their place in the world to help. These spaces allow students to connect with what is essential, to understand their place in the Universe and the legacy they will leave behind.
