Colegio Nueva Granada, is a bilingual private primary, elementary, middle and high school in Bogotá, Colombia

Colegio Nueva Granada was founded in 1938 by Frederic Dever, Doris de Samper and Irving Byington.

Colegio Nueva Granada teaches a U.S college-preparatory curriculum. Students study for both the U.S High School Diploma and the Colombian Bachillerato Diploma[citation needed]. The majority of the classes are taught in English with a varied curriculum including Foreign Languages (only Chinese and French), Sports, and Technology. The school's staff includes foreign as well as Colombian teachers. The AP systems is offered to students, allowing them to increase their knowledge. As most teachers in CNG are young Americans, they don't usually take their teaching seriously.

Students from this school have been accepted at some of the world's most prestigious universities[citation needed]. Yearly over 50 top universities are invited to visit the campus to recruit interested students in their fields[citation needed].

In 2004-5 it had 1,659 students at levels from pre-kindergarten to Grade 12. Of these 1,121 were Colombian nationals, 197 were dual citizens of Colombia and the USA, 176 were US nationals and 165 were of other nationalities.[citation needed]

Students participate in sports including volleyball, soccer, baseball, volleyball, hockey, basketball, chess, masonry, ping-pong and track and field. The school participates in known tournaments as the Uncoli, Asocoldep, and Binational Games, the latter held on campus this year, sheltering more than 200 national students from other cities.

Among the social projects in which students participate, Hogar Nueva Granada, Alianza Educativa and personal student Social Service Hours are the most important (as they are mandatory). Hogar Nueva Granada and Alianza Educativa are projects formed to help children and families in need with health and education programs to ensure their futures as Colombian citizens[citation needed].

Yearly students teach English to approximately 40 children, ages 7 to 14, from the surrounding neighborhoods of Juan XXIII and Bosque Calderón in Bogotá[citation needed].

Others participate in the continuing education program for adults, 18 to 40 years old. This is a joint program, with CAFAM with the help of teacher and student volunteers, to prepare adults to validate elementary school and also to get ready for ICFES exams in the higher levels of education[citation needed].

House system[edit]

Colegio Nueva Granada follows the House system tradition. Through the grades, students and teachers form part of one of the four houses (Falcons, Eagles, Hawks and Osprey). Houses compete in both academic and athletic tasks, crowning a winner at the end of the school year, depending on the overall points the house received. The winning team gets a trophy that is put in the hallway of the school they are in. They have jump rope contests and field days, but most important are the points. In elementary kids elect their House representatives. In third for House Representative. In fourth for Vice-President, and in fifth for Captain. Anyone can enter. They have to make posters and hang them in the hallway. At the final day of campaign they have to give a 1 minute speech in front of their grade telling why they should get elected. There should have a girl and a boy for each place. However, this tradition lasts only up to Middle School.

Tri-Association[edit]

The school was the host of the Association of American Schools of Central America, Colombia, Caribbean and Mexico meeting in the week of October 13 of 2006. Around 1000 people from all over America came to the school.

Accreditation[edit]

The school is accredited by the Colombian Ministerio de Educación Nacional[citation needed] and the US-based Southern Association of Colleges and Schools[citation needed].
