It is becoming increasingly more common for families to visit Costa Rica for an extended vacation to experience the region more fully.  PACR offers those families a solution that avoids any interruption in schooling.  PACR welcomes short-term students, who can attend our school while their family is in Costa Rica, and be guided by our teachers through our own curriculum or that of their home or online school programs.   

In other words, if you prefer, PACR will communicate with your child’s teachers in their home school to ensure that your child will not be behind their class upon their return.  In addition, we encourage our short-term students to join in fully – and perhaps participate in our Spanish program, cultural courses/excursions, and surf lessons. This program allows families to embrace life in Costa Rica, without the worry of any academic consequences upon their return home.


Short Term Program

This unique program enriches the lives of all of our students – our local students and international students – as we are able to use the opportunity to learn about each other, and better encompass the values of peace and diversity on which our school is founded.
