What we offer

We also offer facilities, services and human support of the best possible quality in a large ecological campus within the city of Bogota.

Institutional characteristics

We have 8 characteristics that support our educational model and make us one of the best institutions in Bogotá.


Opus Dei is an institution of the Catholic Church, made up of men and women, which helps to find God in work, in family life and in all other ordinary activities. Opus Dei gives this orientation to the values we live as an educational community. This is materialized in the life of the school by striving to study and work well, taking care of details and dedication to the family.


Our Educational Project is centered on the person and considers him/her unique and free. For this reason, our curriculum respects and develops the character and abilities of each person.
Personalized Education


Each person learns differently and has different motivations, therefore, the process in and out of the classroom must respond to these differences. At the school there is a balance between conceptual, project-based and experiential learning. This is the Cerros method.


Parents are the first and foremost educators of their children. The school is permanently interested in understanding their vision and they, in turn, are grateful to know the teachers' impression of their children's formative process. For this reason, the group director and the mentor hold quarterly interviews with them in order to jointly set accurate and coordinated objectives in the structuring of the student's improvement plan.
As parents have the greatest impact on their children, they need to be trained to better guide them. To this end, the school facilitates their participation in specific programs designed especially for this purpose.


In a world with strong social, cultural and economic exchanges, it is necessary to develop social integration skills among citizens of multiple nationalities.


A full personal life involves the positive development of the environment and those around us, especially those most in need. At Cerros we impact multiple groups in society and, in our interaction with them, we encourage the habit of solidarity in each of the people in the educational community.


The urban and natural surroundings of the school form an ecosystem that is well suited for the well-being of the community.


The school's architecture is an expression of its values. Our facilities favor and enhance training, learning and school coexistence.
