At Euroamerican College we prepare our pupils for success in a globalized world by means of a comprehensive educational programme, based on humanitarian and environmental principles.
MISSION AND PHILOSOPHY
A school surrounded by green spaces favors the development of the pupils. Studies carried out in the USA by the PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences) revealed that children who study in schools with more green spaces have greater concentration and memory performance. There are many reasons why green spaces can improve the mental performance of children.
The education proposal of the EAC, which includes an absence of pollution, encouragement of physical activity and humanitarian and environmental principles, is unique and a great education choice for your children.
The Euroamerican College was founded as the Colegio EuroAmericano in 1997. It was initially located in San Isidro district and, in 2001, the Pachacámac building was constructed. After 20 years and as part of the modernization project, it changed its name to Euroamerican College. Since it was created, it has offered an international education and has been committed to environmental issues, instilling an ecological philosophy, the principles of which are to learn, value and act in order to take care of and preserve nature.

EDUCATION FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT (ESD)
Our ESD philosophy allows pupils to discover the natural, social and cultural aspects of the environment in which they live. They learn to value these aspects, experiencing, analyzing, solving problems and generating initiatives.
Wastewater treatment plant
The Wastewater Treatment Plant is a water reuse system. It operates by transferring the wastewater from the septic tanks, previously adapted and inoculated with anaerobic bacteria, to a biological filter with stones and algae which refine the water. This continues its journey along channels with algae, water lilies, duckweed, fish and batrachians which complete the natural cleaning. The entire process is carried out without using any chemical products.
The result is transparent, odorless water, which is used to water our gardens.
Reusing water allows a considerable saving to be achieved in drinking water, prevents pollution of the aquifer and reduces maintenance expenses for gardens and septic tanks.
Learn – Think – Act – Save
This plan was designed to promote environmental awareness among the members of our education community.
We want to improve the understanding of the surrounding environment, helping our staff and pupils to learn, think and act in relation to the environmental problems affecting the planet.
We also want to encourage an understanding of the impact that we cause on our environment, measuring our carbon footprint and water footprint, thus seeking ways to reduce them.
CREATIVITY, ACTIVITY, SERVICE (CAS)
The notion of sharing and offering help to those who most need it occupies a special place in our education. Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) forms part of the International Baccalaureate Programme and is designed to broaden the personal and interpersonal learning acquired by the pupils.
On this course we carry out various activities of help and social promotion for the community, all pupils being involved since these activities form part of the school’s syllabus.
