High School/Diploma


From 16 to 17 years of age

Discover our High school

The High school/Diploma program at Olinca is a proposal focused on the development and consolidation of life skills through a demanding academic program, supported by curricular subjects of the CCH-UNAM program aimed at exploring the IB Diploma Program (PD-IB) with the option of certification. Our third language program, French, continues, as does our approach to technology through subjects dedicated to the development of STEAM skills. Along with academic objectives, social-emotional support is of the most importance and our students fully exercise their critical thinking abilities. We foster a spirit of solidarity and commitment focused on improving our surroundings and with projects that have a social or environmental impact.

Our methodology

The High school/Diploma curriculum has a mixed methodology where critical thinking is encouraged. Through challenge-based learning, the knowledge and skills acquired by students are applied through a cycle of design and reflection, alongside a detailed approach to mathematics, science, language, and humanities.

At the same time, students work on the acquisition of life skills in subjects that explore entrepreneurship, economics, technological applications, databases, and programming. The entire academic proposal is enriched by activities that promote wellbeing, so that students can go out into the world as well-rounded individuals.

Graduate profile

Olinca High school/Diploma students have the knowledge, academic, and social-emotional skills that allow them to successfully face any life option: college studies, entrepreneurship, and/or social and climate change actions.
