About Colegio Jorge Washington

Colegio Jorge Washington is a private, non-profit, non-denominational, co-educational, N-12 international school offering USA and Colombian diplomas, accredited by Cognia and the Colombian Ministry of Education.

The School is governed by a 9-member Board of Directors elected to 3-year terms by the Colegio Jorge Washington Parents Association, which sponsors the School.  Membership in the Association is automatically conferred on the parents or guardians of children enrolled in the School.

The curriculum is that of a U.S. college-preparatory school.  Instruction is in English and Spanish. A dual program prepares students for both the U.S. high school diploma and the Colombian Bachillerato degree.  The School is accredited by Cognia, and by the Colombian Ministry of Education. The graduation rate is 100% and students go on to colleges and universities in the United States, Colombia, and Europe.

The main campus is located on the outskirts of the city with 3 independent, self-contained wings for Elementary, Middle School, and High School.  Within these 3 wings, we find 3 science laboratories, two music rooms, a central 2-story library, 2 AV rooms, 3 computer labs, and 2 learning centers for children with diagnosed learning disabilities. Sports facilities include 4 outdoor multi-use courts, 2 full-sized soccer fields, 1 softball diamond, and an air-conditioned coliseum that serves both our sports and fine arts programs. Our modern preschool facility for 18 months to 5 year olds, is located in the city within proximity to residential neighborhoods.
