Wasatch Academy foreign language students began collaborating with students at Colegio Altair in Lima, Peru, in the fall of 2013. The project began with Skype discussions between students at the two schools, and a student-run Tumblr blog. It has since developed into a full-on exchange partnership between the schools.
Altair Education Center is a private institution founded in 1995 with the aim of providing a bilingual education, with a modern and comprehensive approach to learning. As with the Wasatch vision, Colegio Altair seeks to meet the intellectual, physical, emotional, and social needs of their students.
The college is located in a residential district of La Molina.
There are currently about 800 students enrolled in the college from the age of 2 through high school seniors, making it is a proper K-12 learning environment.
The school staff consists of 70 teachers, 10 psychologists, two specialists in language education, a full-time therapist, educational assistants, administrative and management staff, maintenance staff and security, and more. Standard hours of study vary for different grade levels, and students can choose to participate in a variety of sports and cultural clubs that take place after school.
