Summary/Abstract: This title was chosen by educators and teachers coming to Guča Gora on the 23rd December 1883. The education of the Bosnian Franciscans was an obligatory aspect for creating their human, Christian and Franciscan profiles. The acceptance of candidates coming to schools at this particular monastery in this province was in the care of the Franciscans from the beginning. A higher level was achieved 1892 when in Kreševo a unique school started opened, overtaking the task of single monasteries. The school had three teachers and lasted three years. In Guča Gora from 1883 to 1900 the school was kept open in the same way with additions, improving and perfecting the education. Gradually five classes were introduced and the number of teachers was increased. There was an attempt to achieve the standards of state schools and to equip the school with expedients and also plans to create better conditions, such as a new place, a new building, which was realized already 1890 by moving the school to Visoko. The province administration kept a vigilant eye on this institution. The difficulties were material, political, but also inner indolence and individual selfishness, a tendency to satisfy particular interests and an inert look at the future. Despite all difficulties, an improvement was more or less achieved and the monastery in Guča Gora gave its contribution. At that time Guča Gora was the best solution for high school and seminary.
