Welcome to MyAmigos

Why are we different from other programs?

Children in our program are learning at a high dual language academic level, not only to be prepared for primary school, but also to impact the world. Exposing your child to a Christian, bilingual and multicultural environment from an early age leads to an appreciation of diversity, better problem-solving skills and greater opportunities in today’s global economy.


Brain Development

Studies show that being bilingual has many cognitive benefits. According to research, speaking a second language can mean that you have a better attention span and can multi-task better than monolinguals.



Bilingual children are usually more adaptable to new environments, meeting new people, and stepping out of their comfort zone.



Bilingual children tend to have a higher concentration and are better at working through distractions while doing their school work, because they are having to switch from one language to another constantly.


Future professional opportunities

Speaking a second language has numerous employment benefits. Being bilingual means that there are more job opportunities depending on which languages you speak.

I am so grateful that a wonderful school like My Amigos Bilingual Education Center is in West Columbia! Since my daughter was born I knew she needed to have a bilingual education and this is all possible thanks to MABEC!

The teachers and all the staff are great and make you feel like family.

My husband and I are extremely satisfied with our daughter's education so we highly recommend this school to everyone!!
