Transformation of society through education is the DNA of UWC Costa Rica. By bringing together teens of 70+ nationalities across the socio-economic spectrum to live, dream, and learn together, our campus becomes a laboratory where idealism is nurtured by an educational model that encourages students to put ideas into action. Here they build bridges to generate collaborative ways of thinking to shape a more peaceful and sustainable future.

Programs & Funds:


UWC Costa Rica's Scholarship Fund is the tool that allows us to create an intentionally socio-economically diverse community by giving 82% of our students the financial support they need to attend UWC Costa Rica—one of the most comprehensive scholarship programs in the world!

The Agents of Change Program empowers UWC Costa Rica students to turn their ideas into action to tackle real-life problems they are passionate about through a creative and experiential process where they work collaboratively with local communities to drive positive social impact.

The Wellness Program is a school-wide initiative that fosters a culture of wellness—mental, physical, emotional, social, and spiritual—among all our community. Its focus lies on prevention, detection, and intervention by addressing the culture of taking care of themselves and each other.
