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
Technological advances 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 while maintaining the Gold Standard for Project Based Learning.
With the support of live teacher guidance in real time, our students ask questions and use modern resources to create solution-orientated projects.
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!
8:20 Community Morning Meeting via Facebook Live for the entire school where students are encouraged to set their daily intentions.

10:10 Break time!
10:30 Second class block begins! Our goal for upper elementary and middle school students is to manage their personal schedule and workload independently. Lower elementary teachers take great effort to teach our younger students how to confidently learn online.

A Note from Our Director
While our team at Journey School of Costa Rica never anticipated to launch our Distance Learning Program during a global pandemic, we find ourselves in the unique position to serve beyond our campus… even if temporarily.
If your school has closed in this unprecedented time, we welcome you to join our community of online learners! This is an overwhelming time for educators. We’re here to help. A few spots in every grade are open to be filled for a month, the rest of the school year… or as long as you need! Just reach out and let us know how we can support you.
