The Educational Program

Forming life long learners with Christ centered values.

A Holistic Education

After the Civil War, many refugee communities were displaced by the Guatemalan military. These CPR's (Communities of People in Resistance) formed primitive villages all around the country. In 2001, this program was initiated following the request from several CPR village leaders from the Zona Reyna area for an education for the children of their community. To this day, this program aims to equip these children with a wide range of values, skills, knowledge, and abilities that are necessary for their growth and success as individuals in the modern world.

The Project covers three levels of education: Lower Secondary, Upper Secondary, and Tertiary (Undergraduate and graduate)

Middle School

The Instituto Mixto de Educación Básica por Cooperativa (IMEBAC) offers a Lower Secondary Education where students build upon foundational knowledge and skills, not only academically, but both physically and spiritually as well.

Highschool

El instituto Mixto de Educación Diversificada por Cooperativa (IMEDC) focuses on educating students in an Upper Secondary education, addressing not only academic needs but also emphasizing personal and social development. This approach aims to nurture students and prepare them for success in various aspects of life beyond the classroom.

University

In 2010, an extension of Universidad Mariano Gálvez was added to the program. This allows students to stay in the village while pursuing a tertiary education instead of travel the 10 hours every week to the University in Santa Cruz del Quiche.

"It seems to me that education has a two-fold function to perform in the life of man and in society: the one is utility and the other is culture. Education must enable a man to become more efficient, to achieve with increasing facility the ligitimate goals of his life. We must remember that intelligence is not enough. Intelligence plus character–that is the goal of true education. The complete education gives one not only power of concentration, but worthy objectives upon which to concentrate. "
