High School

Welcome to the High School at COJOWA!

Our four-year high school program features both a US and Colombian curriculum. A stellar team of teachers from Colombia and North America work with our students in the core subjects and also through a varied set of academic and non-academic elective options. COJOWA’s High School builds upon the Middle School’s skills-based approach to learning that challenges students to think critically, to solve problems individually and together, and to engage in real-world, meaningful projects and problems. Through these daily activities and challenges–which increasingly center upon project-based learning opportunities– students are prepared as learners and thinkers to succeed on the Prueba Saber exams and to thrive in future educational settings and in the United States, Canada, and Europe. They are also prepared to become life-long problem-solvers ready to take on tomorrow’s challenges with an education based in values.

A typical high school day at COJOWA features six class periods, as well as time each day for students to meet individually or in small groups with their teachers. During an extended lunch period, teachers are available during set office hours, and clubs and activities flourish. These clubs range from student government, National Honor Society, Model United Nations, and service offerings such as Interact (a US-based service organization), a home-grown, student-centered service and environmental group. The high school program at COJOWA is designed to have students in our high school increasingly take control of their own learning as they move toward their college years.

COJOWA supports the development of reflective citizens and innovative thinkers prepared for the complexities and rapid changes that exist today and helps them to be prepared to be leaders in building a better tomorrow.

Career Counseling

Our counseling team guides students starting in grade 9 to get ready for college and select their major and help them through the university application process. They hold group and individual meetings with students for the career planning process. As students move through High School, college and career planning increases. Counselors support and guide students, but each student and the family are responsible for the final application and enrollment to university.

Student support includes organizing college visits on and off campus, vocational tests, university search to find the “right fit”, standardized test requirements, online applications, workshops, and alumni visits, among others.

Academic Coaching Center

We believe that all students deserve a quality education and opportunity to reach their potential. We know that some students will need support and specialized instruction to reach their academic goals. The Academic Coaching Center works with teachers and parents to support students that have an educational need.
