Words from our Head of School
Welcome to Santiago College, and thank you for taking the time to explore our unique institution. We hope that this website will be useful to you, whether you are searching for a school for your children or are members of our community, or alumni.
This website is designed to deliver useful and current information about who we are, what we do and how we do it.
There has always been something special in the spirit of Santiago College, something that has been present since its foundation and which has remained throughout our long history. This explains the joy and achievement of our students, the success of our graduates, as well as the deep ties they have with the school for the rest of their lives.
What is that special something? Two invigorating forces: tradition and innovation. Together, they help create a school that is developing continuously and dynamically, while based on solid, inalterable purposes and values.
