Schools begin a path of methodological innovation

19/03/2015: Spain

Marist schools have always been at the pedagogical forefront. Saint Marcellin Champagnat, founder of the congregation, was a pioneer in the first decades of the 19th century and he introduced innovative learning techniques. Being on the verge of the bicentennial of the founding of the Marist institution, colleges of the Compostela Province have begun a journey of methodological innovation and have already begun to introduce novelties in the developments in our classrooms. 

This new step means not only educating so that students obtain the maximum knowledge

and the maximum qualification; today, more than ever, children and youth need to be trained for life. The goal has been changed and, therefore, the learning model also needs to change. 

The current requests of centers in the Spanish autonomous communities -Castile and Leon, Galicia and Asturias – where Marist schools of the Compostela Province are present, the institution suggests that new students and their families enter ‘in their life’ – ‘in your life’ – and invites them to welcome the Marist charism as a model of education. A model based on methodological innovation, with Marist spirituality and solidarity, pillars to form "good Christians and honest citizens" for the 21st century in the style of Champagnat.
