COLUMBIA, KY - Lindsey Wilson College recently started a partnership with a school in Bolivia designed to broaden educational opportunities for students at both schools. The partnership with Calvert Cochabamba Cooperative School will allow high school students at the private, 500-student, P-12 school in Cochabamba, Bolivia, to take select online LWC classes.
The agreement -- signed earlier this month -- will also streamline the process that will help Calvert high school students apply to LWC as full-time residential undergraduates. The 60-year-old school's school curriculum is English-based, according to Calvert Cochabamba Cooperative School Director Absael Antelo.
"It's a good mix of students, and our teachers are very interesting people as well," Antelo said. "Our students will benefit from this agreement. Many will be eager to come here, especially after they graduate with dual-credit courses."
Antelo said he is excited about the possibility of sending students to LWC, especially after he toured LWC's A.P. White Campus.
"On my tour and meeting with faculty and students, I was impressed with the campus and its commitment to learning," Antelo said. "The classes I attended were very active courses."
In addition to opening educational doors of opportunity to students and graduates of the Bolivian school, the agreement will also benefit LWC students.
"We want to enhance our global-citizenship programs and initiatives, and global leadership," said LWC Education Division Chair David Moffett. "So this is going to provide opportunities for our faculty and students to ultimately have exchanges with students from their school."
