Colegio Hacienda Los Alcaparros
From the onset Colegio Hacienda Los Alcaparros had a special mission: to teach and educate through an approach that envisions education as an ethical, scientific, and aesthetic practice. The CHLA approach also includes a respect for differences and for the individual process for learning that is unique to each person. Students are active participants in this ongoing educational project that is based on promoting personal development while encouraging conflict resolution.
This innovative method is aimed at forming global citizens. CHLA students are aware, knowledgeable, have a commitment to ecology and to large-scale global issues. Aside from what is taught in the classroom students gain knowledge through participation at an international level in conferences and enrich their educational experience through interdisciplinary project-based learning and cultural exchanges.
Colegio Hacienda Los Alcaparros is a space that promotes learning to learn, learning to do, learning to share. At Alcaparros, each individual learns to care for his/her own story; each individual learns to be and to become.
