“Godspell College was born as a result of a passion for education that was in my life and part of my family since I was very young. When I studied with Víctor García Hoz, mentor of Personalized Education, I felt the need to do something different and founded Godspell College“
Elena Ortiz de Maschwitz (School Founder).
More than 40 Years - A Revolution in Education
Godspell College is founded in San Isidro with the proposal of a Personalized Education by Victor García Hoz.
"Recuerdo que llovió a cántaros el día antes de empezar las clases y no teníamos pasto. Charlie compró unos panes de pasto para llegar a la bandera en el medio del barro. El lunes salió el sol y fue el comienzo de lo que hoy es el colegio"
Personalized Education was and remains the most important pillar of how it is taught in the Godspell. The PERSON is educated with an emphasis on the SINGULARITY, OPENING AND AUTONOMY of each one.

We begin to study how the brain learns. We know that our previous knowledge, our emotions and ideals affect our learning. We also know that learning requires a climate of optimal interpersonal relationships and a rich physical environment.
