Headmaster's Welcome

Welcome to Dorado Academy!

 

Thank you for your interest in Dorado Academy as an educational option for your child.

 

My name is Celia Busquets and I am very excited to be part of this amazing learning community and to have the honor of serving as your new Headmaster.

As a school, we have one purpose; to provide an exceptional education for every individual. Whatever our role in school –teaching or support staff– everyone has a contribution to make towards that purpose to provide a world-class educational experience.

 

We are committed to offering a well-balanced academic program, with an engaging curriculum that helps create a community of learners fully devoted to developing their skills and talents for college and career readiness in the 21st Century. Also ensuring that all children experience success, reach their full potential and have a lifetime of memories.

 

Beyond this attention to academic and personal achievement, we work to reinforce the enduring values of honesty, respect, compassion, integrity, and sportsmanship. It is our priority to protect the health, integrity and safeguard that every child who sets foot in Dorado Academy feels that they are part of a family within a learning community where everyone thrives.
