Our History

Villa Per Se School was born in 2015 as an alternative school able to break with the traditional schemes based on the national curriculum. We were looking for a school that would immerse its graduates in English so that they could function successfully anywhere in the world, and that would have a methodology centered on the person, taking into account all his or her dimensions: cognitive, emotional, social and spiritual. To educate children and their families in caring for the planet and to form citizens with values, agents of change, leaders capable of transforming the world.

We regard the best of the west as meaningful technology and learning projects. We draw on the best of the East, such as meditation, yoga and mindfulness.

We believe, in accordance with the Finnish educational model, that working through projects and learning different trades is an excellent way to learn, since it provides balance to our students by developing both hemispheres of the brain in them. We are convinced that Villa Per Se provides students with the tools they need to be successful in life. We take special care of their emotions and feelings, because our main objective is to accompany them and help them manage them in the best way, that is why we take mindfulness very seriously.

Sustainability is one of our fundamental axes, for this reason caring for the environment is integrated into each of our projects. In the annual planning of all grades, we have taken into account the Sustainable Development Goals established by UNESCO.

«A child who achieves inner peace, learns to connect with himself, manages his emotions, cares for nature, lives a culture of peace and tolerance, is ready to learn without limits and is ready to change the world». Janice Roeder - Principal

Our History

El colegio Villa Per Se nace en el año 2015 como una alternativa de escuela basada en el currículo nacional, capaz de romper con los esquemas tradicionales. Buscábamos un colegio que fuera de inmersión al inglés para que sus egresados puedan desempeñarse de manera exitosa en cualquier parte del mundo, que tuviera una metodología centrada en la persona teniendo en cuenta todas sus dimensiones: cognitiva, emocional y espiritual. Que educara a los niños y sus familias en el cuidado del planeta y que formara ciudadanos con valores, agentes de cambio, líderes capaces de transformar el mundo.

Philosophy

"Per Se" means "by oneself", a capable person, who trusts in oneself, who is a protagonist, supportive, committed and integrating. We are committed to a holistic (integral) vision, paying attention to the body, the heart and the mind. This should always start from dialogue, cultivating the healing power of peace, joy and love within us, instead of judging and labeling. If we have this vision, that label, seeing it positively as a virtue, can be a sign that indicates a great potential for development in that sense.

Vision

Villa Per Se is an educational institution that cultivates values and principles for the formation of wise, conscious human beings, capable of expressing and managing their emotions to reach their spiritual, physical and intellectual potential and to fight for the mission of their life in the search for achieve a better world for your own development as a spiritual being.

Mission

Offer a quality education in an atmosphere of joy, fun and innovation in search of forming empathetic, autonomous citizens with the capacity for global change.

Values

To lead a good healthy life, we must be accompanied by healthy eating, sports, and meditation or prayer. Lives governed by values also produce good people for themselves and for humanity. We have considered 3 very powerful values for our community to learn and carry out for a lifetime. We work with Villa Per Se values throughout the year because they are the basis for a better world.

Unity

Empathy

Resilience

English Immersion

Being a school that is committed to immersion in English, our challenge is to offer children from the moment they enter school an environment where English is spoken naturally in all spaces and at all times of the day, except the class of communication and that of a teacher or specialist workshop. In Nursery, Pre-kindergarten and Kindergarten the children are accompanied by their tutors all the time and they always speak to them in English.

In order to speak a second language, it is important to work on phonetics from a young age, so we will help our students to have a better pronunciation, therefore, we give special importance to this point.

It is amazing how quickly children adapt to the instructions and routines in English, and they are often the ones who teach their parents how to communicate better in that language. The English spoken at the school is American, however, starting in elementary school, they are prepared for the Cambridge International Examinations depending on the grade level. We choose this process so that students are ready to function competently in the part of the world they choose.

In 5th grade they have the opportunity to learn a third language, French, which was chosen because it is a language that is spoken in many countries, including America.

World Citizens Program

While we work on the affective and emotional part, which brings the child closer to their loved ones and sensitizes them, we also give great importance to the work of autonomy from Nursery. After the adaptation stage, when they are able to gain confidence with their teachers and classmates, the annual program includes a Pajama Party for the children from Nursery, Pre Kindergarten and Kindergarten, who stay after school doing many "Camp" activities, sleep at school and spend a fun night away from home and without their parents.

This activity helps them to become independent, responsible and autonomous.This process is progressive, so in the first two years of elementary school, trips are scheduled to places like La Cantuta, Cieneguilla or Lunahuaná, that is, they will sleep in a place that is not everyday for them without the company of their parents but with the company of their teachers.in third grade begin the first trips to Ica, Chincha and Paracas (they visit the Ballestas Islands, the Nazca Lines and participate in an experience where they learn about Afro Peruvian music in Chincha). In fourth grade they travel to Trujillo and Chiclayo (they visit the Huacas del Sol and de la Luna, the Lord of Sipan, Chan Chan, the Huaca Rajada, among others, and appreciate the Marinera).

In 5th grade they go to Arequipa and Colca, in 6th grade to Tarapoto and so on, discovering their country and its customs. In 3rd grade they also begin trips abroad to English-speaking cities, where they are welcomed by local families, go to school, learn about the culture and practice English all day; they make friendships with their local family that could last a lifetime. These trips give students the opportunity to develop in real life the skills they have been working on at school.Every year more and more families join this program that we call World Citizens. Elementary school children travel with one of their parents, but later on, from 8th grade on, they will travel without them.

World Citizens Program

Si bien trabajamos la parte afectiva y emocional, lo cual acerca al niño a sus seres queridos y los sensibiliza, también le damos mucha importancia al trabajo de la autonomía desde Nursery. Luego de la etapa de adaptación, cuando logran tomar confianza con sus maestros y compañeros, se tiene en el programa anual un Pijama Party para los chicos de Nursery, Pre Kinder y Kinder, quienes se quedan haciendo muchas actividades de “Camp” después de clases, duermen en el colegio y pasan una noche divertida fuera de casa y sin sus padres. Esta actividad les ayuda a ser independientes, responsables y autónomos.
Este proceso es progresivo, así, en los dos primeros años de primaria se programan paseos a lugares como La Cantuta, Cieneguilla o Lunahuaná, es decir, dormirán en un lugar que no es cotidiano para ellos sin la compañía de sus padres pero con la de sus maestros.
En tercer grado comienzan los primeros viajes saliendo a Ica, Chincha y Paracas (visitan las Islas Ballestas, las Líneas de Nazca y participan de una experiencia donde conocen la música Afro Peruana en Chincha). En cuarto grado viajan a Trujillo y Chiclayo (conocen las Huacas del Sol y de la Luna, el Señor de Sipán, Chan Chan, la Huaca Rajada, entre otros, y aprecian la Marinera). En 5° grado se van a Arequipa y el Colca, en 6° a Tarapoto y así, van descubriendo su país y sus costumbres.
En 3° de primaria empiezan también los viajes al extranjero a ciudades de habla inglesa, donde son recibidos por familias locales, van al colegio, conocen la cultura y practican inglés todo el día; hacen lazos de amistad con su par de la familia local que podrían ser de por vida. Estos viajes le dan la oportunidad a los estudiantes de desarrollar en la vida real las competencias trabajadas en la escuela.

Every year more and more families join this program that we call World Citizens. Elementary school children travel with one of their parents, but later on, from 8th grade on, they will travel without them.
