OBJECTIVES

The Bachillerato-Sixth Form programme is the continuation of that which has been learned in secondary school. In this new stage in the lives of our young people, we must delve into everything that they have already learned. At this stage we will continue to work on:

  • ASSUME

    • The risks and the consequences of one's actions. 

  • HELP

    • oneself without waiting for anyone to say what or how it should be done.

    • to express what they think, reasonably, but also know when to be silent to express one's own feelings.

  • CONNECT

    • with reality to know that failure exists and is necessary for improvement.

  • CONSIDER

    • others as an opportunity to enrich ourselves and grow together.

  • DISCOVER

    • that emotions are information about the complexity of a person.

    • that this is their school, even when they are no longer here.

  • ELIMINATE

    • prejudices, stereotypes and role

  • FOSTER

    • Respect towards everybody else.

    • the Dominican spirit through our own example.

    • Dialogue as a tool to overcome inequality.

  • BOOST 

    • ​​self-esteem and be aware of the importance of the existence of those around you.

    • excitement as the motor to keep going forward, without it becoming a dream, for dreams disappear.

  • PREPARE AND GUIDE 

    • for the way to University or, in certain cases, to Higher Vocational Training.

  • PREVENT

    • any kind of violence, especially against women and the vulnerable.

  • DEEPEN

    • the FAITH through Confirmation in Bachillerato Level 1 and post-confirmation groups in Bachillerato Level 2.

In addition it is our intention that, by the end of this period, students who are prepared and who are at the minimum age necessary, will obtain the title of "MITJÀ" in Valencian and C1 in English.

GENERAL CONTENTS
(Secondary and
Bachillerato-Sixth Form)

In Secondary and Bachillerato-Sixth Form we work towards one singular goal. That goal is none other than to train our young people as people. In this sense we must emphasize the importance of:

  • WORK: The way young people give back to their society which has provided all the means at their disposal so that they are trained and can build a hopeful future and world. To achieve this we need EFFORT.

  • EFFORT: Each and every one of us has abilities and skills that make us different, but we ALL have the ability to do our best and perform within our means. When we make the most of that effort, we will be at peace with society and ourselves. Effort is synonymous with MOTIVATION.

  • MOTIVATION: The engine of life because it is what makes us move forward. It is what helps us believe that the world could be different, helps us believe that we are needed to transform what we don’t like, and lays the groundwork for thinking that work and effort are worth it. We have to fight, but we need a deep COMMITMENT to achieve it.

  • COMMITMENT: FAITH should be the cornerstone of life, the essence of our enthusiasm. We must follow the path that Jesus began and that, years later, Dominic continued and promoted so that his followers would make their own and, through him, reach Jesus. That path passes, among many other things, through RESPECT.

  • RESPECT: The basis of tolerance and, by working and making it our own, we will be able to accept the diversity that characterizes us and help us grow as people. After all, we are neither machines nor do we step off of the assembly line fully formed. Respect does not end with those who are closest to us, but also reaches those furthest away and who need our COOPERATION.

  • COOPERATION: The world we live in is divided into two very different groups: the ones who have everything they need to meet their needs and the ones who don’t. We need to be aware of those differences, while at the same time believing that we can contribute so that those who have nothing can have something.

FAMILY INVOLVEMENT
(Secondary and Bachillerato-Sixth Form)

At this developmental stage, relationships with families are carried out through the teachers. Throughout the course there is a meeting in September and another before the end of the course.

In the first meeting of the school year each teacher will present the objectives and the criteria for promotion with the families of each student. In the case of 4th of Secondary and Bachillerato Level 2, the teacher will also explain the criteria for graduation. In addition, the teacher will remind the students of the rules of tolerance and introduce all other teachers.

During the meeting of 3rd of Secondary, the families are informed of the beginning of Confirmation. The students, voluntarily, sign up for catechism groups that will continue, without any interruption, until their Confirmation in Bachillerato Level 1.

The second meeting takes place in May. In this meeting, the families of 3rd and 4th of Secondary meet together with the teachers. They are reminded of the criteria of promotion in 3rd of Secondary, and of the criteria for graduation in 4th of Secondary. In addition, they are informed of the different options for 4th of Secondary or Bachillerato Level 1. Finally, in 4th of Secondary they are also informed of the criteria for placement in Bachillerato Level 1.

In Bachillerato , in both Level 1 and 2, there is a meeting with the teachers in September. Each teacher, in addition to presenting the course objectives and impact on living standards, focuses on the importance of work and effort to get the best score possible. In addition, at this meeting the teachers are introduced. During the meeting of Bachillerato Level 2, special emphasis is placed on the importance of Selectivity.

In addition to these general meetings, throughout the year teachers and families have as many meetings as needed, either requested by the family or teacher. 

These meetings are designed to encourage the commitment of the families to work together with the school because education is a trilogy: FAMILY-STUDENT-SCHOOL.
