Learning styles are the strategies used by a student to acquire knowledge, their analysis allows educational institutions to improve learning environments, which commonly depend on biological, psychological, environmental, school and community conditions. This paper presents a study on learning styles applying data mining techniques to the information derived from the application of two tests called VARK and CHAEA to the students of the Educational Institution “Joaquín Cárdenas Gómez” of the Municipality of San Carlos-Antioquia (Colombia). This work formulates a plan of support for the Management Directive with the list of factors that influence learning. The findings indicate that learning styles alone do not influence school failure, require the combination of other elements such as age and have more than one learning style.
