Profile

What makes CELCO School model of education so unique is its holistic and practical grounding, a model which incorporates high academic standards, leadership formation, peace-building initiatives, environmental stewardship and socially responsible citizenship.

For a country like Colombia which is still struggling with implementing peace agreements with different actors of armed violence, human rights violations and internal displacement, a holistic and practical model of education like the CELCO’s school is indeed a critical need, a promising opportunity and a tested laboratory for social transformation and peaceful co-existence. CELCO School represents the fertile soil where the promising seeds of social leadership and dignified service- oriented vocations are being planted.

 

This project is a living example of resilience and passionate mission. Beyond all the unexpected challenges of the Covid 19 pandemic in terms of technology, economics, social interaction, the school adapted to unexpected realities with amazing creativity and thus it survived. Parents, teachers and the community at large developed amazing relationships and solidarities. With the fresh lessons of such resilience, we are now entering into fresh alliances and partnerships so that beyond the 71 years which we are celebrating in 2024, may keep adding new chapters.

 

60% of the funding will be used to provide scholarships so that families who face economic challenges may ensure their children are enrolled and receive a high academic quality education. By providing scholarships the school will increase the number of students enrolled and thus strengthen its sustainability. 30% will be directed to assist with salaries for teachers. 10% will be used to foster environmental education and activities.
