Video and Photos


Summer is the most flexible time in a student-athlete's schedule and our most popular program in Costa Rica! You'll share your adventure with student-athletes from across the US while earning credit and keeping up with your workouts!

We've partnered with one of Central America's top universities, Universidad Veritas, located in Costa Rica's capital, San Jose, and centrally located from the student's host families. Students have the choice between Spanish Language courses or a full catalog of elective courses taught in English including biology, business, politics, environmental science, and much more!

Students will also enjoy weekend excursions to Volcano Arenal, gain access to private training facilities and weight rooms and organize service-learning clinics for Costa Rican youth.

*This program is not exclusive to student-athletes*

  • Earn an entire semester of credit from one of the best universities in Central America in just four weeks!
