Journey School of Costa Rica proudly secures its third accreditation, gaining recognition from the esteemed International Baccalaureate (IB) organization. This accomplishment complements the school’s existing accreditations from Cognia in the United States, and locally in Costa Rica through the Ministry of Public Education (MEP).


Situated in the vibrant coastal town of Tamarindo, Journey School is a unique bilingual institution, offering Reggio Emilia inspired programming in preschool, and project-based education from kindergarten through 12th grade. The recent addition of the International Baccalaureate accreditation marks a significant milestone in the school’s commitment to providing a globally recognized and holistic educational experience.


The International Baccalaureate accreditation is renowned for its rigorous standards and emphasis on developing students into well-rounded individuals. This accreditation reinforces Journey School’s dedication to fostering not only academic excellence but also social and emotional learning. The school’s curriculum is designed to empower students with critical thinking skills, a global perspective, and a strong sense of community engagement.


Journey School’s journey to excellence doesn’t stop with international recognition. The school’s commitment to quality education is further affirmed through its existing accreditations from Cognia, ensuring compliance with rigorous standards set by US accreditation bodies. Additionally, the school is accredited by the Ministry of Public Education in Costa Rica, reinforcing its commitment to meeting the highest educational standards locally.


Jonathan Zuniga, the proud Co-Director of Education, and IB Coordinator of Journey School, expressed gratitude and excitement about this achievement. “Receiving the International Baccalaureate accreditation is a testament to our unwavering commitment to providing a world-class education that goes beyond traditional boundaries. This recognition opens new avenues for our students, preparing them for success in an interconnected and ever-evolving global landscape.”
