It was the October 1987 when the ambitious project that would become SEK Paraguay International School was confirmed. Work began with the aim to begin the first school year in 1988, the Manor House belonging to the Casabianca family near the golf course and Yacht and Golf Club was chosen for the project.
The school quickly grew, and so work began on a permanent modern location, which was opened in March 1992. The new premises were on Mercedes Grau street near the main street leading to the Yacht and Golf Club. The new, sizeable, modern, bright facilities, surround by nature were equipped with all the tools and resources needed to continue the work of educating students with a permanent focus on excellence and in the unique SEK style.

Various other complements have been added to the main structure since its construction, including a multidisciplinary gymnasium, an undercover heated swimming pool, laboratory, workshops, flood lit AstroTurf football pitch and an extension to Kinder 2 and 3.
