Our History

1988 School Painting of our first school building.

DelCampo International School (DCIS) was founded in 1987. During its first six years, the school offered pre-school and elementary grades, growing annually until 1993, when the Honduran Ministry of Education authorized the establishment of the secondary education program. By then, the school's vision was clearly defined, centered on the premise of providing a high quality bilingual American style college preparatory education. A school focused on developing competencies and reflective life-long learners by challenging all to a high academic standard while encouraging honesty and social responsibility. The school curriculum was designed to allow students to earn the equivalent of a U.S. recognized high school diploma as well as the Honduran "Bachillerato" degree.  In the year 2010, DelCampo became the first school in the country to adopt the Common Core State Standards and during the school year 2014-2015 it began its full implementation.


In August 2010, DelCampo International Academy initiated a one-of-a-kind and world recognized, full time school within a school program to provide services for students with specific academic learning needs. “The Academy” provides intensive individualized remedial services for students with an identified learning difficulty in a small group instructional setting by highly qualified members of a multidisciplinary team.  

DelCampo International School´s history of achievement in providing college counseling services and assisting students seeking to continue their studies at the university level outside of Honduras is well known. The College Counseling office has successfully developed strong binding relationships with university admissions offices throughout the United States and other countries. These relationships have translated into millions of dollars of scholarship money being awarded to DCIS' students. The program´s success is a testament to the school´s quality academic program and most importantly to our students' academic preparation.

At DCIS we are proud of our past but also recognize that we cannot rest on our many achievements.  Through the efforts of the entire DCIS community we are optimistic that our future will be even brighter as we undertake the challenges of preparing our students for university study and professional careers in the 21st century.
