The Monte Tabor-Nazareth Educational Unit has initiated an endeavor in the hands of God the Father and Mary. This endeavor is an endeavor of love because to love is to educate, to love is to grow, to share especially the important moments in the life of the human being.
The Monte Tabor-Nazareth Educational Unit seeks to educate students basing its curriculum on a process which incorporates: the skills of interactive methodologies, the motivation to favor the learning process, the development of abilities which incite the ability to question oneself when facing all confines of knowledge, the stimulation of creativity and critical spirit, accepting the differences, and participating in group tasks.
“To educate Christian families, free and solidary who interact in society with values and actions which generate a radical change in the nation.”
“To be an educational Catholic institution that forges a new community in Christ and Mary. Men and women rooted in the Faith, capable of making free decisions and prepared to face difficulties, and who with academic excellence and profound formation in values that contribute to the development of Ecuador.”
Seeking to educate children and youths who integrate and form a more human culture with the message of Jesus’ salvation and under the protection of Mary. Thus forming leaders who contribute to society with creative and important solutions in accord with the values of the Gospel and their own values.
This proposal is sustained on the Pedagogy of Father Joseph Kentenich, centered on the harmonious formation of the person. It is a response to a global society that depersonalizes the individual through materialism and the lack of values. The spiritual formation of the Educational Unit is led by the Schoenstatt Fathers in the following areas of responsibility:
- Pastoral Direction
- Educational Counseling
- Pastoral care of teachers
- Pastoral care of families
- Spiritual formation of the students
