12 Experts accompany Catholic Formation
Our pupils get to know Jesus and are formed in Christian values, living their faith joyfully.
We educate by evangelising and evangelise by educating according to the charism of Regnum Christi. Our school is part of the educational work of Regnum Christi, a movement of the Catholic Church that has been promoting educational centres in many countries around the world for 70 years.
We form our students in a Christian vision of reality, in which faith and reason come together to make man give the best of himself. We want our school to be an environment where everyone can discover God’s love in their lives and feel the call to transform society according to Gospel values.
We educate by evangelising and we evangelise by educating according to the charism of Regnum Christi.
Every day in our school is an opportunity to know Jesus and to live the joy and beauty of faith.
Our aim is for each student to have the experience of feeling loved by God and to discover the Church as a family in which there is a unity that fills the heart.
We offer a range of activities and programmes to help them acquire a fundamental knowledge of the Christian faith and morals and to experience a deep friendship with Jesus Christ through prayer and the sacraments.
Formation for leadership and apostolate
He who does not live to serve does not serve to live
Social participation and apostolate
We educate our students in servant leadership, so that through their education and their profession they feel committed to the good of the society to which they belong.
We help them to discover through experience that there is more joy in giving than in receiving, and thus to commit themselves to the good of others. It is not only a question of wanting to encourage in our students a spirit of service and helping others, but also of making them aware of the delicate situations that many people around them live in and choose to be responsible citizens who are determined to work for a fairer world.
With this in mind, our pupils participate in social projects adapted to their age from Pre-school to Higher Secondary, which foster their sensitivity to the needs of others and give them the transforming experience of serving the most disadvantaged in our society.

SANTA ISABEL SOLIDARITY
The entire RMSI educational community unites strongly under the slogan “Santa Isabel Solidario” in favour of those most in need. To this end, it programmes all kinds of actions throughout the school year in which students, parents and staff get involved.
Of particular note are the collections of basic necessities that take place periodically, especially at the time of Santa Isabel and Christmas, in which the entire educational community generously participates.
In addition, with the help of the delegate couples, each year group sponsors an institution and different activities are programmed during the year. Depending on the age of the pupils, the involvement of the pupils will be greater.
These activities involve both material aid and awareness-raising through activities in old people’s homes, centres for the disabled, soup kitchens and parishes.
The ultimate goal is to provide all students with opportunities to love and serve others following the example of Jesus.
The projects in which we collaborate are:
- Help for disadvantaged people and/or those at risk of social exclusion: Caritas, Hermanitas de los Pobres, Centre d’Acollida Assís, Mª Auxiliadora Parish, Cottolengo Padre Alegre, Santa Gema, San Sebastián Parish,
- Accompaniment of the elderly: Sanitas Centres for the elderly, Residència Betània, Residència Sant Ignasi de Loyola, St. Gervasi Residencial, SARquavitae Regina, Casa de Familia, Mas Anglí, DomusVi, etc.
- Support for pro-life projects: Provida, Maternity, Hogar de María, Casa Guadalupe, Llar Santa Isabel i Residència Madre Teresa, etc.
- Collaboration with centres for the intellectually disabled: Fundació Canigó, Fundació Boscana, Fundació Finestrelles, etc.
- Aid to developing countries: Vis Foundation (construction of new classrooms for a school in Nigeria), Streets of India.
Houses are teams in which the whole school community is divided vertically, in order to foster a sense of belonging to a common group, with students from all grades.
Students learn to relate to this diversity and to live a form of union based on differences, being able to see the richness and learning to live in community. Taking into account:
- The difference, a multiplicity of different people who relate to each other.
- A common mission The mission of each alliance is to live the virtues of its patron saint throughout the school year, in each of its activities and events.
- The bond that unites the people who make up the community; a bond that is accompanied by a feeling of belonging and that makes the group united, that is to say, it makes it “solid”.
- A dynamic of mutual giving, of gratuitousness and encounter between the members.
Our Reial Monestir de Santa Isabel School has four Alliances by colour: Red, Yellow, Green and Blue. Each year, a Baccalaureate student is chosen as “Captain” of the Alliance. In the week leading up to St. Elizabeth’s Day, each Alliance celebrates a day of togetherness, sport, games, prayer and solidarity. On St. Elizabeth’s Day, the four Alliances and the whole educational community come together to celebrate the feast of the patron saint of the school.
