We find that the practice of sport activities are an educational mean that helps the student set goals in her personal life project. In this space, Salcantay students have the opportunity to keep sharing and acquiring habits of coexistence, tolerance, respect. Along with habits that promote good health and a better quality of life sports foment a sense of endurance and perseverance.
We are members of ADECOPA (Asociación de Colegios Particulares Amigos – Association of Fellow Private Schools), which allows teams of different disciplines and categories to compete in a healthy manner.
Salcantay has the following competitive teams: Volleyball, basketball and gymnastics.
