About the institution

Cole­gios de alto rendimien­to (COAR) is an ini­tia­tive of the Peru­vian Min­istry of Edu­ca­tion. The COAR net­work is locat­ed through­out the 25 regions of Peru and serves a pop­u­la­tion of 6,700 high school stu­dents. COAR tar­gets stu­dents from all regions of the coun­try who have out­stand­ing abil­i­ties and pro­vides them with an edu­ca­tion­al ser­vice of high nation­al and inter­na­tion­al qual­i­ty stan­dards. This allows stu­dents to strength­en their per­son­al, aca­d­e­m­ic, artis­tic, and/or sports com­pe­ten­cies, based on a respect­ful, crit­i­cal, and inter­cul­tur­al dia­logue. COAR aims to uphold an edu­ca­tion­al mod­el that is a ref­er­ence for aca­d­e­m­ic qual­i­ty and edu­ca­tion­al, orga­ni­za­tion­al, and man­age­ment inno­va­tion, which improves pub­lic edu­ca­tion and forms a com­mu­ni­ty of lead­ers capa­ble of con­tribut­ing to local, region­al, nation­al, and glob­al development.
