The Journey School of Costa Rica is thrilled to announce the establishment of its newest campus at Costa Ballena, situated in the beautiful Dominical-Uvita area. This addition signifies a notable expansion of the Journey School family, integrating educational excellence within the stunning natural environment of Costa Rica.
Located within a new multi-use development, the Costa Ballena campus will join a vibrant Costa Ballena community that includes residential, commercial, and mixed-use spaces. With a capacity to welcome 250 students, this campus embodies the Journey School’s vision of creating learning environments that are both stimulating and supportive.
Perched with breathtaking views of the ocean and mountains, the campus is uniquely positioned to offer students a learning experience that is enriched by the natural beauty and ecological diversity of its surroundings. This harmonious blend of education and environment aims to foster a deep appreciation for nature and a commitment to community engagement among students.
Slated to open its doors on August 19th for the 2024-25 school year, following the North American academic calendar, the Costa Ballena campus introduces a bilingual, project-based learning approach that is rooted in the tenents of Social and Emotional Learning. This method emphasizes interactive, experiential learning, allowing students to engage directly with their studies and one another in truly meaningful ways.
In a significant move to ensure the highest standards of education, the school will be accredited by three distinguished agencies: the Ministry of Public Education (MEP) in Costa Rica, the Middle States Association (MSA) in the United States, and the International Baccalaureate (IB) organization internationally. This triple accreditation underscores the school’s commitment to providing a world-class educational experience, preparing students for success both locally and globally.
The Journey School of Costa Rica’s new campus at Costa Ballena marks the third installment in the franchise, furthering its mission to offer innovative and community-integrated education. As the Journey School family continues to grow, it remains focused on exploring new opportunities to expand educational horizons across Costa Rica, enriching the lives of students and communities alike.
