Aware of the fact that parents are the primary and chief educators of their children who are seeking the best for them, we also accept the commitment to collaborate with them on the education of their children. This is why the families play a central role at Highlands School, Seville and their presence and participation is essential for achieving the goals of our educational project. Both the spiritual and doctrinal educational activities at Highlands School, Seville were created in 1994 under the direction of the Legionaries of Christ. This Catholic Church institution of pontifical right was founded in 1941 with the mission of establishing the kingdom of Christ throughout society, according to the demands of Christian justice and charity and in close collaboration with the Bishops and pastoral programmes of each Diocese.
We are an educational centre that promotes the Catholic faith and Christian values within an environment of full respect for the freedom of both parents and pupils.
Our formative model encompasses four areas: Spiritual Formation, Formation in Virtues, Social Participation and Formative Discipline. This education is geared towards fostering personal maturity and the acquisition of human virtues – generosity, respect for others, sincerity, commitment, sportsmanship, etc. – that may be developed by means of various educational activities so that each pupil is able to reach their full potential.
This school forms part of a network of centres dedicated to the education, formation and teaching of children and adolescents.
In Spain, this network comprises seven schools plus the Universidad Francisco de Vitoria. At each centre there is an ICF (International Centre of Integral Formation), an international team of professionals with extensive experience in pedagogy, humanism and social aspects. This team is in charge of ensuring that each centre maintains a high academic level that is homogeneously applied to our educational system.
