At The Spanish Language Institute we support the Church in fulfilling the call of the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ by equipping, evangelizing, discipling and educating Christ-centered servants and international and Costa Rican missionary families.


The Institute's academic program is flexible enough to adjust to a wide range of proficiency levels, from beginning to advanced, as well as a variety of learning styles and preferences. In addition to the traditional classroom, we offer the FARO community language learning program, as well as individual tutoring.


For those who enjoy physical recreation, the gymnasium is open weeknights for basketball, volleyball, indoor soccer, and workout classes.
