High School 9-12

Welcome to the High School Learning Program

Colegio Maya’s secondary program provides rich educational opportunities in a supportive atmosphere. Small classes, individualized learning and a truly international faculty and student population, make Maya a rich learning environment.  The school is a member of the Common Ground Collaborative, which focuses on deep conceptual, competency and character-based learning experiences.

All teaching and learning in High school is guided by our learning principles.  The High school curriculum builds on the middle school development of conceptual understanding, disciplinary and transdisciplinary competencies and character traits taught through conceptual frameworks and an inquiry-based approach.  

A blend of academic opportunities, including a range of Advanced Placement (AP) courses and High school Electives, complemented by extra-curricular and service opportunities, empowers students to develop personalized learning experiences in real-world contexts.  In grades 9 and 10 students build a strong academic foundation and develop competencies and positive learning behaviors needed to prepare them for the demands of their final years.

The mentor program develops students as critical thinkers who ask thoughtful questions, and build the tools that enable them to form healthy relationships and make informed choices.

Infused throughout our programs are opportunities for students to engage in meaningful and sustainable service learning opportunities designed to make them active participants in improving their communities.
