The Academy of the House of the Teacher (CdM) has an intensive preparatory program for recent high school graduates. During the school year, CdM lays the foundation for the students' next stage in life. Our goal is for students to finish the year with a vision of who they are in Christ, strong principles and values they will live by, and a clear career path.
A story that inspired the Academy: Marta and Magdalena, and their father arrived in the city, intent on finding a college prep class. But, the father had only two days to find housing and the school; the girls had not considered any possible careers until they were in the registrar's office. CdM accompanied the small family through the process and even helped them find a safe boarding house for the girls. The experience emphasized the need to provide vocational orientation to high schoolers/recent graduates so families have support in the pursuit of their dreams.
A current student: Maria struggled in the village, having no clear vision of where to go from the success of high school. When she heard about CdM, she jumped at the chance to study and try something new. When she learned the opportunity required her to study the Bible and participate in a Christian community, she expressed gratitude and curiosity. CdM is introducing her to not only a future without poverty, but more importantly, introducing her to her Savior, Jesus.
