Colegio Dominicano bases its teaching in the programs implemented through the Department of Education. We reinforce these programs with activities and subjects that complement and enrich the education of each student, offering a modern education with the goal of being a modern, constructive, and formative institution.
Language is the instrument that we use to communicate and transmit our culture from generation to generation, which is why Colegio Domincano’s education context includes a multilingual and multicultural atmosphere, adding great importance to the formation of an individual.
When learning Spanish, we pay attention to strengthening oral communication abilities, enriching vocabulary and grammar knowledge, learning expressive reading and writing, and reading comprehension to reach a high level of mastery of their native language.
With math, we use the development of logical thinking in order to solve problems. Through the mastery of this subject, students reach their capacity to discern the origin of matter and reach their potential of intellectual capacity within all branches of knowledge.
The purpose of this program is to awaken the artistic, cultural, and human sensitivity in our students by giving them opportunities to connect with the fine arts, exhibitions, and crafts.
Through science, we encourage critical and scientific thinking in students that allows them to learn about the surrounding world. Various methodologies to study the phenomena that occur in nature are used.
Through the topic of social studies, we awaken the historical-civic awareness in students. A focus is placed on the interrelation of economic, political, and social development with the geography of all countries, as well as with their history, art, and culture.
The school orientation and psychology provide support in behavioral, emotional, and cognitive development to families, students, teachers, parents, administration, and support staff. They are also in charge of the education of values for our students.
Technological literacy begins in preschool and culminates in high school, being used as an indispensable educational resource for learning. It facilitates and streamlines the educational and social processes. It promotes knowledge, interaction, efficiency, and productivity in the classroom between teachers and students. High school students are offered training in design, analysis, and programming. In addition to these courses, they are also offered a certification in a Microsoft Office Specialist certification course (MOS-2020). This certification includes training in PowerPoint, Word, Excel, and Access.

The fundamental objective in this theoretical and practical program is to train individuals to be capable of collectively assuming the responsibility of creating and enjoying a sustainable society. It is also important that they are trained on how to contribute to the strengthening of the educational processes that allow maintaining appropriate environmental conservation measures to collaborate with current and future generations. We are recognized as an Eco-School by the International Eco-Schools Award Certificate for all the work we have accomplished through this program.

Reaching a mastery of these languages allows them to integrate themselves into the cultural and economic development of other countries. They are acquired as foreign languages through specialized programs, with English beginning in preschool and French beginning in fifth grade. Both programs continue until the last year of high school. These projects are endorsed through Alliance Francais, in charge of French, and Winthrop University in South Carolina that gives us support in English, including some of our preschool and elementary teachers being graduates of the College of Education.
