Our students understand, live and project our institutional values from a Christian perspective. They assume their academic excellence as the abilities that will help them lead positive transformations in their family, social, economic and political environment.
At GCB, our motto is "Empowering Colombian Leaders". This is why our students carry out two political activities, taking advantage of the opportunity presented by the new government standards for Democratic Culture and the Training in Citizen Competencies.
We take part in the organisation of the School Government as the first political exercise which is made up of representatives of the various parties involved in the educational community, in which the Council and the Student Representative play an important role. These groups comprise students from grades 3 to 11.
The second political exercise is related to the organisation, realisation and participation in the Model of the United Nations (MUN) which involves improving citizenship skills and working towards peace through role play, a life experience that strengthens the qualities of leadership and the interdisciplinary vision of the current world. Students from 4th to 11th grade take part in this project.
We have been developing this project since 2004, and in 2019, due the recognised quality of the GCB Model of the United Nations (MUN), we were invited to participate in the Harvard University MUN.
Since 2003, GCB has belonged to the “Mejores Bachilleres de la Universidad Nacional” program which awards three annual scholarships to the most outstanding Colombian bachelors to study any undergraduate program at Universidad Nacional allowing them to pursue their professional career.
In addition, GCB has numerous agreements that allows our graduates to access universities in a preferential manner (without an interview) and be eligible for distinguished scholarships. Prestigious institutions such as Universidad del Rosario, Universidad de La Sabana and Pontificia Universidad Javeriana are among these exclusive and preferential agreements.
