We are leaders in education for well-being and character.
The Gimnasio Moderno has been selected, along with 26 other schools in the world, as one of the global benchmarks in education for well-being, character development, happiness and emotional care.
Its Positive Education and Leadership model will be presented at the World Meeting on Education for Well-being organized by the IPEN (International Positive Education Network), together with other partners, at the end of October this year. This is a very important achievement for the school because it corresponds to its mission “to educate, not just instruct” and responds to its vision “to be a reference in positive education in Latin America and, now, the world.”
As the Ecohumanos organization, experts in leadership and human development, said, after an exhaustive evaluation of a year and a half of its training programs: “The Modern Gymnasium fulfills its promise of training value, with the postulates of its founders and its mission, and form for autonomy, empowerment, leadership and happiness ”.
27 schools from places as diverse as Finland, Canada, Singapore, Kuwait, India, Nigeria, Dubai-United Arab Emirates, Australia, USA, New Zealand, China, South Africa, Hong Kong, Chile have been selected as references and case studies. and Colombia.
Juan Sebastian Hoyos, our vice-rector and creator and coordinator of the Positive Education program, who will present the principles of our model, said he was “very satisfied with this news, because it is a result of the rigorous work of all the teachers, the support of the Rector and of the Superior Council. It is the result of research, passion and innovation, and the achievement of bringing the Gym back to the place where it belongs, at the level of the best in the world. Just as at the time it was a reference for being a pioneer of the Active School in Ibero-America, now we are pioneers and leaders in Education for Well-being and Character Development in the world. As Don Agustín would say, this is Educating for life, and not for the exam: Educating, not just instructing “.
At this meeting, the world’s leading researchers on the subject such as Martin Seligman, Sir Anthony Seldon, Angela Duckworth and Lea Walters will also present themselves.
