The SEK Educational Institution is rooted in a century-old family tradition with no links to any religious, political or economic group. It was founded in 1892 and its sole commitment ever since has been to provide quality education based on its own ideas and principles. Felipe Segovia Olmo (1936-2013) was the Institution’s Director General from 1958 to 1965, when he was nominated as its President. In 2000, he became the first Rector of the Camilo José Cela University and was subsequently made Honorary Rector and Chancellor. In 2010, Nieves Segovia Bonet took over as President of the Institution.

The student is the be-all and end-all of everything the SEK Educational Institution sets out to do. It aspires to teach the values of liberty and upholds plural values while respecting religious ones. It recognises work as a platform for promotion and personal evaluation but champions solidarity. It seeks to foster an international mindset so that students may attain the highest possible personal fulfillment. To achieve these goals, we have created our own, distinctive education system to bring out the very best in our students.
