In 1967, Clonlara School founded its first campus in Ann Arbor, Michigan, based on the experience, vision and mission of Founder Pat Montgomery, Ph.D.
During the pandemic, Clonlara School was forced to temporarily close the Ann Arbor Campus Program, which is currently undergoing restructuring to reopen in the 2022-23 school year.
Through the Clonlara Portugal Association, the Clonlara team is working to open a Campus Program in Portugal, its first campus outside the United States of America – Clonlara School – Idanha.
With the signing of the contract with the City Council of Idanha-a-Nova, for the transfer of a building for the project, on January 13, 2022, Clonlara School begins a new chapter in its history – the realization of the first international school in the municipality of Idanha-a-Nova, in the Beira Baixa region.
The project is, at the moment, at the licensing stage with the Ministry of Education in Portugal, and the opening date depends of it´s legal approvals.
Through its affiliation program, Clonlara extends its services to other educational projects aligned with our mission, vision, and pedagogical principles.
Clonlara School found in Colégio de São José (CSJ) and in its VOAR educational project, the ideal environment to implement its educational model.
The international section of Colégio de São José offers a personalized academic path, based on the criteria of the State of Michigan and Portugal.
In Coimbra, there is now the possibility to participate in a personalized, meaningful, and relevant education, at the first international school in the city.
Organized in groups of different ages, students work under the guidance of a tutor, individually or collectively.
