Our Educational Model



San Felipe Institute uses the model IGNUS powered by EdKor. Our model helps students to become experts in learning.

Each student has an iPad used to research, create and share their learning with the world.

We use an interdisciplinary methodology using Challenge based learning and Project Based Learning.

The model is based in competence development. The student learns by doing projects that sometimes are shared with the world.

Our educational program considers all the human being dimensions: intellectual, emotional, social, physical, artistic and spiritual. It integrates the National curriculum with the “IGNUS subjects”. It develops abilities and competencies.
