Saint Clare Educational System is an educational institution with more than 64 years of being integral transformers of children and adolescents, with deep Franciscan values.
We are a non-profit institution that commits all its efforts in the permanent improvement of its system, to offer the highest academic quality.
Saint Clare begins its functions under the responsibility of the Order School Sisters of Saint Francis, due to the concern of Monsignor Odio and other Costa Ricans to create a bilingual school for girls. It begins in San Vicente de Moravia, with a small group of 42 young ladies.
An innovative and revolutionary pedagogical option began to take shape within the Institution, directed by Mr. Quince Duncan, initially known as SIDEI, and in 1980 it was implemented as a pilot plan called SIPEIN (Acronym for its name in Spanish)
(Interdisciplinary Pedagogical System), which is still in place today.
The Franciscan Sisters decided to withdraw from the educational activity in the country. For this reason, the Pro-Saint Clare High School Association was organized, composed of parents, alumni, teachers, and administrative staff of the school, to give continuity to the same philosophy, academic plan and symbols.
