Do you have any agreements with local or foreign universities?
We have agreements with several local and foreign universities. Likewise, as a result of the excellent performance that our graduates regularly have, we have preferential income in some local universities. During the year we hold several university fairs so that students can learn about opportunities in national and international universities. Most of the years, universities from Peru, United Kingdom, United States, Canada and Australia participate, amongst others. We also invite representatives of the universities to visit the school and talk with the students (and their parents) about the opportunities they can offer them. You can read more about the activities of our Upper School pastoral service.
