How to Apply:

  • Required application materials include:
    • Admissions Form
    • Most Recent Transcripts or Report Cards
    • One Teacher recommendation
    • Copy of student’s birth certificate
    • Certificate of Immunization
    • Proof of health insurance
    • IEPs if applicable
    • On campus visit and/or Zoom Call
    • Letter from previous school (if in Costa Rica) stating that there are no outstanding payments or fees owed by the family
    • Tuition Contract

When a student’s application file is complete it will be reviewed by the Admissions Office for acceptance. Acceptance notifications will be completed by June 2023.


Registration and Material payments must be paid in a timely fashion by June 1st in order for us to be able to order books, equipment, and supplies in preparation for the new school year, but, as importantly for you, paying on time will secure your child’s place within his/her class.  The matriculation is non-refundable.

*Late registrants (after May 1): Matriculation fees are due before the student may attend school, or within 30 days of acceptance to TIDE Academy; whichever occurs first. A $100 penalty fee will be assessed for late Matriculation Fee payments made after scheduled dates above for the 2023-2024 school year.

Returning Students

All returning TIDE families, who are already registered, will need to complete the following:
