Accompaniment is the “soul” of our educational model. Just you, but not you alone.

In the process of forming and developing to the human stature to which we are called, no one can be substituted, but we all need to be accompanied.

The milestones of this path of personal growth are summarised in a motto:

Know Yourself, Accept Yourself and Surpass Yourself

Accompaniment…

  • It is a path of encounters towards the fullness of the person, in which trainer and student mutually enrich each other.
  • It is to be committed to the student becoming to an excellent degree what he/she is called to be.
  • It is to establish a deep relationship of support, dialogue and communication.

Accompanying means accompanying students on their journey of growth, welcoming them with their talents and their difficulties, with absolute respect for their freedom and their rhythms, so that they can respond to the questions and challenges they encounter, discovering their own vocation and shaping their life project.

Our model of accompaniment is based on a holistic view of the student, discovering all his dimensions: ethical, spiritual, intellectual, affective, communicative, aesthetic, physical and social.

In order to help them grow in a complete, harmonious and fulfilling way, we offer them a wide range of activities and programmes that revolve around accompaniment.

We train in:

  • Self-knowledge and the encounter with oneself.
  • Harmony of character and integration of emotions
  • Conviction, autonomy and critical spirit
  • Relationship and encounter with others
  • The discovery of one’s own vocation
  • The configuration of a life project

The training itinerary followed by the students, accompanied by their trainers, is made up of different activities and programmes that aim to have a real impact on their lives:

  • Affective-sexual training – Let’s Learn to Love programme
  • Etiquette and good manners
  • Virtues programme: Joy, respect, obedience, forgiveness, order, responsibility, kindness, generosity, friendship, strength, humility, sincerity, gratitude and effort.
  • Individual growth process: Know Yourself, Accept Yourself and Surpass Yourself
  • Mentoring programme
  • Entrepreneurship subjects and programmes
  • Individual and group tutorials and workshops with students, character development, emotional education, specific methodologies, assessment for learning, etc.
  • Reinforcement and extension groups for students who need it. When we detect that a pupil has difficulties or high abilities, the Guidance Department together with the teacher study the teaching processes that may be most beneficial, either through the transformation of the teacher’s material (Internal Curricular Adaptation) or through complementary material; always with the aim of each pupil achieving the best version of him/herself.
  • Vocational Guidance Programme: This programme seeks to help the pupil to become aware of his or her own gifts together with the opportunities and needs of the environment and to give him or her the tools to be able to plan his or her future. It is a process that extends throughout their school life, but which takes on greater importance from 3rdESO to 2nd Bachillerato, with the accompaniment of their trainers being the key factor.
  • Tutorials with families, psycho-pedagogical advice and the human formation team.
  • Accompanying families: We accompany each family in the integral formation of each of their children and for this reason, we go beyond the usual contact between families and the centre’s professionals to offer a Programme of Accompaniment for Parents from which we offer workshops: parents’ schools, workshops for married couples, etc.

Formation in values and emotions

We educate the heart, we educate to love

Formative discipline

We are reason and heart, and this is prepared with attitudes and habits that help us to live as persons of integrity and coexist with others. Our educators work to help children and adolescents discover the values that lead to rules in everyday life so they can act through self-conviction and not the mere imposition of those rules by others. We believe in education that respects the individual, as this leads to reasoning and willpower in students.

Virtues Programme and Education for Love Programme (“Let’s Learn to Love”)

By preparing the willpower, affectivity and emotions of our students through these programmes, our goal is for them to mature according to their age. This maturity is reflected in skills such as being faithful to accepted responsibilities, knowing to read their own feelings and integrate them into other aspects of their life, taking cautious decisions, opening themselves up to others and giving themselves to others; in short, loving.

From Pre-school to Upper Secondary, our students work in a cross-curricular manner tailored to their level of development. Every week, virtues are experienced through an objective that is worked on at school and embodied in a mural so they can set an example for others.

  • In Pre-school years, a virtue of the month is presented to students during assembly using a story, a video or the lives of saints in a way that is adapted to our youngest pupils and always based on the needs of each group.
  • As part of the tutorial Action Plan in Primary and Secondary years, students benefit from a session dedicated to working on the virtue of the month during their tutoring hour in order to further develop and tackle the needs of the group.
  • Campaigns and visits are organised from the 4th year of Lower Secondary onwards, with the students themselves leading and initiating the projects they carry out. This helps them learn how to “put themselves in the shoes of another”, to value everything bestowed upon us by God and to share what they have with others.

Mentoring programme

  • What is mentoring?

An educational relationship established between a mentor and each of his or her mentees, a privileged space and opportunity for each Baccalaureate student to experience a comprehensive human accompaniment by his or her mentor, at a vital and academic moment as relevant as the one he or she is experiencing.

We also call “mentoring” each of the “stops” or milestones that make up this journey, the structure of which is described below.

  • Who do we accompany through mentoring?

The programme is aimed at all students in the Baccalaureate stage. We are therefore talking about all students between the ages of 16 and 18.

They are people who are going through the singular vital moment of adolescence, whose fundamental meaning is the search for their own identity and their own place in the world, and who are completing their schooling, before going on to higher education. It is a very important existential moment marked by two key realities: mission and vocation.

  • What are we looking for in mentoring?

The aim of the programme is to accompany each of these people at such an important time in their lives, when they have to close one stage, that of their time at school – taking stock with gratitude of what they have lived and learned – and open up to a new one, with many illusions and no less uncertainties. All of this is framed within the evolutionary moment of adolescence. The aim is, therefore, that each pupil can count at this time on a formator who accompanies him, that is to say, who places himself at his side, “welcoming him as he is and where he is, with his talents and possibilities as well as his wounds and limitations, with absolute respect for his freedom and his rhythms”, to help him to discover his mission in life and to open himself to the challenge of his own growth towards the fullness to which he is called.

  • How do we accompany? The mentoring itinerary

The bedrock of mentoring is the relationship between the mentee and the mentor. The fundamental how is that relationship, is the encounter between them. Together, mentor and mentee go through an itinerary made up of three stops or mentoring in the first stage and another two mentoring stages in the second stage. Each of these stops consists, in turn, of two moments: one communal, experienced at the same time by all the students on the course together with their mentors (group mentoring), and another individual, in the “one-to-one” between the mentor and the mentee (individual mentoring).
