(universities, colleges, schools, kindergartens and socio-educational centers), educating more than

82,000 students


4,500 teachers worldwide. According to official data, it is one of the ministries in which the Augustinian Recollects have the greatest presence, and it is currently one of the best evangelizing platforms.


Networking: Educate


Since the 55th General Chapter, held in 2016, the educational work of the Order of Augustinian Recollects has been carried out through the international Augustinian Recollect educational network EDUCAR.

Fostering communion today in a globalized world requires networking. That is why this work is carried out through EDUCAR. Its name derives from the word EDUC, which evokes the word ‘education’ and is common in the official languages of the Order (Spanish, English and Portuguese), and from AR, referring to Augustinian Recollect.

The EDUCAR network brings together all the educational works of the Augustinian Recollects throughout the world. Managed by the General Secretariat for the Educational Apostolate, its purpose is to offer resources and unify the Augustinian teaching model.

Among its objectives is to foster the relationship and collaboration among the educational centers of the Augustinian Recollect family; to disseminate the principles of Augustinian pedagogy in the educational centers of the Augustinian Recollect family and to collaborate with the educational centers in the formation of teachers; to offer initiatives among students and teachers of the network; and to collaborate with the ARCORES Network in the design of social initiatives, justice, peace and defense of creation in the educational field.
