Our Last 30 Years
DelCampo School (DCS) was founded in 1987. During its first six years, it 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 competent and reflective life-long learners, by challenging all to high academic standards 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 Baccalaureate degree. In 2010, DelCampo became the first school in the country to adopt the Common Core State Standards. Its full implementation began shortly thereafter.
On August 2010, DelCampo Academy initiated a one-of-a-kind, world recognized, full time academic program to provide services for students with specific learning needs. Furthering its academic offering, “The Academy” expanded its services to include, school wide pull-out services, Spanish as a Foreign Language, and speech, occupational and executive function therapies. In 2017, we implemented the only Gifted and Talented Program in Honduras.
DelCampo 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 around the world. These relationships have translated into millions of dollars of scholarship money being awarded to DCS' students. The program´s success is a testament to the school´s quality academic program and most importantly to our students' academic preparation.
At DCS, we are proud of our past but recognize that we cannot rest on our many achievements. Through the efforts of the entire DCS 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.
