After a two year hiatus, French Broad River Academy’s annual cultural immersion trip to Costa Rica is resuming this spring. As part of their Spanish curriculum, students and teachers travel to Costa Rica by grade level, with girls going in March and boys traveling in April and May. On this trip, students live with host families and are provided with the opportunity to expand their language skills and cultural knowledge.

To top it off, students get to explore the country through outdoor adventures like surfing, paddling, hiking and ziplining, and service learning. Eighth graders even get to participate in a whitewater rafting trip down Rio Pacuare.
