Sojourn Academy is a bilingual, international Christian school associated with the Spanish Language Institute. It uses a Christ-centered, North American curriculum from kindergarten through twelfth grade, along with a Costa Rican preschool program for children aged 3 ½ to 5.

The other students are children of Costa Rican parents, missionaries, and other expatriates who live permanently in Costa Rica.
Sojourn Academy has a Christian and missionary ethos, as reflected in its values, curriculum, faculty, celebrations, affiliations, community outreach, and classroom instruction. Bible study, sacred music, prayer, devotionals, and chapel sessions are an integral part of the weekly schedule. Other benefits the school offers:
* Work visa
* One-time flight reimbursement up to $650
* Optional 1 hour a week Spanish tutoring
