Catholic Formation Colegio Privado Madrid

1357 Students in social projects

100 Partnerships for social participation

12 Chaplains and Instructors accompany in Catholic Formation

We accompany and form our students in their spiritual growth through a close encounter with Jesus our friend and a joyful experience of faith.

We have a social participation programme that aims to help our students discover that there is more joy in giving than in receiving.

Our school is part of the educational work of Regnum Christi, a movement of the Catholic Church which has been promoting educational centres in many countries of the world for 70 years.

We form our students in a Christian vision of reality, in which faith and reason come together to make man give the best of himself.

We want our school to be an environment where everyone can discover God’s love in their lives and feel the call to transform society according to Gospel values.

Life in Christ

Every day at our school is an opportunity to get to know Jesus and to experience the joy and beauty of faith.

We want every student to experience God’s love for the school and to discover the Church as a family in which there is a heart-filling unity.

We offer them a series of activities and programmes with the aim of acquiring a fundamental knowledge of the Christian faith and morals and to experience a deep friendship with Jesus Christ through prayer and the sacraments.

This knowledge and closeness helps the pupils to realise what is really important in life. They become aware of the reality of today’s world and develop a sense of transcendence in helping others.

We have the support of priests, consecrated men and women, to guide and contribute to the spiritual and spiritual formation of each of our students and families.

Formation for leadership and apostolate

He who does not live to serve does not serve to live

Social participation and apostolate

We educate our students in servant leadership, so that through their training and their profession they feel committed to the good of the society to which they belong. We train them as apostles, that is, people who feel the impulse to communicate to others the joy and beauty that faith has made them experience.

With this in mind, our students participate in social projects adapted to their age, from Primary to Baccalaureate, which foster their sensitivity to the needs of others and make them live the transforming experience of serving the most disadvantaged in our society.

Everest Solidarity

We want to awaken in each student a heart open to the needs of others, ready to commit themselves to achieve a better world.

All this through participation in projects that make them experience that “there is more joy in giving than in receiving”, with the aim that this commitment accompanies them during their education at school, and in the future, forms part of their lives.

“Everest Solidario” was born as an initiative of the families of Everest School seeking to help disadvantaged people and at the same time raise awareness throughout the educational community about the importance of an open heart, of a warm welcome that helps, accompanies and supports those who need it most.

The main areas of action are:

  • Twinning with the Mano Amiga “Hermano Pedro” School in Guatemala: this programme consists of proposing and carrying out all kinds of activities throughout the school year, with the ultimate aim of opening up the pupils and the whole school community to the reality of the world, fostering in them a spirit of solidarity. Thus, we provide the school with scholarships for underprivileged children in Guatemala. In this way, they will be able to access education and cover their basic food and medical needs.
  • Solidarity events: these are events coordinated and organised by mothers and fathers of the school who voluntarily dedicate their time with the aim of raising funds. The funds raised at these events go mainly to the Mano Amiga school in Guatemala and to different solidarity projects in Spain, proposed by the families and management of the school and the Everest Solidario team.

In addition, the students get closer to the realities that surround us through a social project carried out throughout the year and differentiated thematically by year group:
