Journey School of Costa Rica

Educational Programs

Preschool through Highschool

Educational Programs

Dive into the essence of Project-Based Learning (PBL) with our unique approach:

Embark on a journey of active exploration and investigation, fostering a culture that encourages discovery and learning.

Our teachers strategically employ specific instructional activities and tools to nurture individual inquiry, paving the way for the creation of personalized learning paths for each student.

As students progress, they will navigate a tailored learning path through the integration of formative assessments and standards-based rubrics. Formative assessments enable targeted support or extension at an individual level, while standards-based rubrics empower students to take charge of their learning journey.

For those seeking a completely personalized experience, such as an AP Course, an independent project, or a self-paced online course, our system allows students to request the class. Through a series of student/parent/school meetings, the course is then approved and developed.
