Our History

Today’s students live in a world very different from their parents: the lifespan of education is shorter than ever, information is just a click away, 47% of the world’s jobs are at risk of being automated and most of the workers of the future will be independent. This requires a paradigm shift in education. That´s why a community of educators and local partners created AVANTE GLOBAL SCHOOL, in order to TRANSFORM education.

Avante Global School, founded in Cartagena, Colombia, in 2020, is a member of the Golden Circle Schools, the 1st Community of Schools in Colombia focused on entrepreneurship-based education, applying the highest standards in project-based learning methodologies.
