Santiago College has established that its educational mission is that “SC, at the forefront of education, provides academic excellence in a bilingual setting, solidly grounded in Judeo-Christian values, that draws on cultural diversity, to prepare persons of integrity that contribute actively to the development of society in a globalized world that is subject to continuous change.”
In this context, the academic coordination team plays a leading role as it is responsible for executing the implementation and evaluation of the school’s curriculum.
SC is divided into four Schools: Infant, Lower, Middle, and High. Curriculum planning occurs both within each School as well as in an integrated and transversal manner between the Schools. In this way, it seeks to guarantee an educational experience that is coherent and coordinated, where learning and knowledge are cumulative. Thus, our students grow in confidence and skills, and open up to new challenges year after year.
The team is comprised of the different International Baccalaureate program coordinators present at Santiago College (PYP, MYP and DP), and is in charge of planning, directing, guiding, executing and evaluating the curricular process in the school.
Within their areas, the academic coordinators ensure: educational plans and programs, associated measurement systems and reports, methodologies to be implemented, project management, subject content, coordination with the different departments and the development of study material.
It is also important to consider the importance of the incorporation of the IB program as the base of the school’s curriculum. SC was the first school in Chile to adopt the IB Diploma Program, in 1982. SC was also the first school in Chile to adopt the Middle Years Program (MYP), the Primary School Program (PYP) and the first to have all three programs fully implemented.
