Extraordinary Costa Rica

Building on last year’s solid foundation of staff and curriculum, Mentoring Academy’s 5th year began with nearly full enrollment with many returning students and no turnover in staff.



Year 5 began in the fall of 2016 with a student population of 24 students with 5 females students and 19 male students with three of those students being in the 8th grade. By the mid-school year, three additional students were added to the school with several more lined up for the fall and an active waiting list for the next year. Mentoring Academy staff for the year began with two administrators, nine teachers, and John Muster as head director/teacher.
