Pueri Domus is proud to be a school that was born with the future in mind and the students at its heart. By using a learner-centred approach and active learning methodologies, Pueri Domus helps students to become leaders of their own learning. The school is recognized for its focus on using technology during the learning process. International recognition of this commitment came when Apple awarded the school the "Apple Distinguished Program", a worldwide program that acknowledges pioneering and outstanding initiatives which use technology to further transformative education. Bilingual education is education for the 21st century and technology is an essential pillar of any forward-looking education. Therefore, Coding and STEM are integral parts of the curriculum from Year 2 onwards.
Starting in the earliest years of Preschool, ethical values and social-emotional skills are part of the curriculum developed through practical structured activities within the ConViver Program. The objectives of this program are to foster students' self-knowledge and personal maturity, stimulate initiative and creativity, encourage leadership, and develop citizenship. As a Unesco Associated School, we also promote the students' commitment to Sustainable Development Goals by equipping them with social entrepreneurship skills and active participation in community service.
Pueri Domus's bilingual Portuguese-English program develops the students' language skills by ensuring real-life contexts to acquire, develop and consolidate Thinking Skills in both languages. English is taught not only in traditional Language Arts classes but through Logical Reasoning, Social Sciences and Natural Science classes, all of which are structured to enhance the understanding of information and concepts taught within our integrated bilingual curriculum. The holistic bilingual education offered at Pueri Domus expands students' opportunities to move on to university and college courses outside of Brazil. This culminates in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme on the Verbo Divino campus.
