INSTITUTO CUMBRES SALTILLO HISTORY
In September 1969, the Saltillo Cumbres Institute was founded as a response to the insistence of several parents interested in the integral formation of their sons.
This initiative was due to the good work that, one year after its founding, had reached the Irish Institute of the nearby city of Monterrey and, previously, the Colegio Cumbres and the Irish Institute of Mexico City.
This group of parents contributed with the donation of the land and with means for the construction.
The school opened its doors in September 1969. The first director was Father Fernando Martínez, L.C.
Once again, in 1974, the interest of families to provide their daughters with a comprehensive education allowed the establishment of the Alpes Saltillo Institute. This school marked a new stage in the educational offer for the girls and young ladies of our city.The consecrated Martha Mijangos was the founding director.
At the end of the 1980s, bilingualism began in both schools, and it was a pioneering experience in Saltillo, offering bilingual Catholic education.
The decade of the 90s marked a new period. A better systematization was achieved thanks to the then Pedagogical Advisory Center, initial phase of the current International Center for Integral Formation (ICIF). This effort for academic excellence has been positioning our schools among the most educational quality in the country.
Responding to the challenges and needs of the new millennium, in 2003 we started the Innovation in Preschool Program, based on competency learning, which today also applies in elementary and middle schools.
From 2013-2014, the two schools were unified under a single direction, and areas and facilities were reorganized, maintaining differentiated education in the elementary and middle grades. Preschool and high school offers both genders classes.
