Online & together

From its inception, our Online Learning Program has focused on community; an unwavering focus on the collective health of our students and school family.

In early 2020, though admittedly ahead of schedule, Journey School School of Costa Rica embarked on an exciting project of distance learning courses to better serve our traveling/World Schooling families while remaining focused on community building.

Interactive & Social

The Online Experience offers technological advances that make remote learning possible… and Journey School of Costa Rica’s students are learning to harness those tools!

Through various online platforms and virtual resources, Journey School of Costa Rica has taken the interactive benefits of small class sizes to the Internet.

With the support of live teacher guidance in real time, our students ask questions and use modern resources to create solution-orientated projects through our Online Experience.

How It Works

Each school day at the designated hour, students log into their Google Classroom accounts to find everything they need for a successful day!

Journey School of Costa Rica’s students are in class with live teacher instruction on average 3-5 hours each day, depending on the grade, and are then responsible for completing coursework independently. 

Live & In Real Time

Using online platforms like Zoom, Journey School of Costa Rica maintains a normal class schedule. Our teachers are supported and trained for the Online Learning Program. Check out an example schedule below!

Parent Testmonials

We have a child who struggles in a traditional classroom with distractions, so I'm amazed at how Journey School of Costa Rica's online program has changed him academically. My son is able to focus, participate and complete his work in a way I've not seen before. I look forward to seeing how JSCR will continue to grow their Online Learning Program.

Journey School of Costa Rica didn't waste one single day of learning when it came time to switch to online learning. This speaks volumes to the forward-thinking, flexibility and resilience of the JSCR. Education isn't always about curriculum; it's also about leading by example with a can-do attitude. My kids love their school family!

THANK YOU!! I am so grateful that my son is part of a wholesome community and has witnessed such leadership and guidance in these current times. I am reassured by Journey School of Costa Rica. The students are so engaged and excited about their learning, which is eye opening considering the distance between us all.

Our children studied at Journey school for a few years and had an incredibly engaging learning experience. The style of teaching encompassed not just the necessary academic skills but very important life skills of communication and self awareness, cultivating a sense of values, respect and confidence in all the students. We returned to the UK and our children entered mid educational years displaying strength and ability to deal with change easily. My confidence in the high standard of education at Journey was validated once again when my daughter sat essential UK exams and passed with flying colours which UK students spend 2 years studying for. Not only are the standards of Journey high, but from their time at the school, our children have the strength and courage to interact and move within any new environment with confidence and have settled back into life here easily.
