Costa Rica Field Studies
In the Middle School, talented, dedicated, and adventurous science students are invited to apply to participate in the Costa Rica Field Studies program. This program runs every other year and includes students in Classes VII and VIII (students in Classes VI and VII apply the year prior to participating in the program). Students accepted to the Costa Rica Field Studies program attend a series of cross-curricular classes to learn about Costa Rica from many perspectives; research resident plant and animal species, as well as features of prominent volcanoes in the region; and travel to Costa Rica to explore the tropical rainforest for a week during the spring vacation.
The Costa Rica Field Studies program will next run in the 2019–2020 academic year.
