Enrolling your child

To begin the enrollment process simply read our handbook and discuss as a family if our vision and philosophy is right for you.  If 'yes', indicate the preferred program option (Local 10-month program  / Seasonal 8 weeks or more /  International short stay) and dates in the Application Form.  
Enrolment processes and calendars have changed in response to government regulations regarding school closures and requirements for venues that are permitted to continue operation.  
As a result our offerings will be made on a monthly basis.

A bit about us


Read our resources to find out more about who we are, what we offer. 

Aside from the website, the Family Handbook 2020 is a good place to have a thorough understanding of Life Project Education agreements and policies.  This will help you decide if we are the right learning environment for your child and your family.

Something from you




Application Form



Complete an online application form to share some preliminary information about your family, your expectations and your questions.

We will get in touch with you via email or phone after that.   Then, if the is availability from both sides for the calendar year, we will commence the
formal enrolment process.

01   Visit us


Ojochal, Puntarenas, 

Costa Rica



We would love to receive you for a visit to our campus in Ojochal, to meet our team and experience our daily flow.  


Morning tours typically last for 30-45 minutes.

02   Intake Session and Family Meeting


Compulsory for enrolments of 2 months or longer


After the tour if you would like to enrol your child, then they will be invited to a drop in day and intake session to observe whether Life Project Education is an environment where they can thrive.  S/he will spend a full day of flow experiencing morning and closing circles, democratic learning, mindful mealtimes as well as the different workshops.  Lead mentors will assess academic and social skills and provide feedback.

The family will then meet with the Life Project director and/or administrator to share philosophies on education, home life, world views etc, so that there is a better understanding of where there is alignment and how to create a relationship that will be supportive of the child's learning and development.

Acceptance of the child into Life Project Education will be confirmed in writing within one week of the Family Intake Meeting.

Cost: USD180 per family.  Includes one drop in day for one child with snack and lunch included.

03   Integration Program

Compulsory for enrolment of 3 months or more

Completed in 30-45 days


We believe that the additional support and attention offered through the Integration Program will enable a smoother integration where the child(ren) can adapt and thrive more quickly within their new environment.


Components of the Integration Program include:

  • Observations by and feedback from mentors gathered

  • Three fully customised family check-ins (approx. 1 hour each) with the Life Project Education Director, Alys Robinson

  • Holistic education learning plan together with an appraisal of goals and progress with the Director and/ or lead teacher

  • Access to holistic homeschooling materials

Cost: USD350* per child

*Discount of 50% provided for second child onwards, as check-ins or meetings will happen concurrently, though will be extended, eg to 90 minutes or more.

For International families, ie where enrolment is less than two months and arrival dates in Costa Rica may mean there is no opportunity for drop in days prior to the confirmation of enrolment, consideration of the child's suitability and agreement on learning and other expectations will be completed remotely.
After enrolment is 'accepted' in writing, the enrolment process will be finalised and considered complete by
  1. confirming a calendar of enrolment dates
  2. completing forms to acknowledge Life Project education policies
  3. receipt of the first payment or deposit.
