Welcome to Costa Rica International Academy

 

On behalf of the CRIA school community, we warmly welcome you to CRIA’s website.

CRIA is proud to provide a wonderful learning experience to students from around the world. We are a U.S. accredited college preparatory school serving a diverse international community. We strive everyday to inspire a passion for learning and provide children with the skills, values, and courage to become responsible leaders in their communities and the world. 

As we approach record enrollments once again for the fifth year in a row, we continue to pursue our longer term vision within our values as a community in Guanacaste, Costa Rica.

OUR VISION

We aspire to be a world-class international school with a culture of high expectations, high performance and accountability.

OUR VALUES

We respect all creeds, religions and points of view. CRIA does not undertake religious instruction nor blend secular and sectarian education. At the same time, moral values and spiritual issues have a place in the educational process. Values such as fairness, justice, compassion, honesty, and the Golden Rule are taught without a religious label. Faculty and staff conduct reflect these values and serve as models for the students.

If you are interested in exploring whether CRIA is the right fit for your family, please come and visit us and we’d be delighted to have you see and meet our students and teachers in action firsthand!

Lois Mare

School Director
