Costa Rica’s British Institute to close in June

April 26, 2012

Acclaimed English-language school Instituto Britanico, or British Institute, is closing in Costa Rica “after more than a quarter century of operating,” the center announced Thursday in a message on its website. 

The school cited financial restructuring as the reason for the closure. The Instituto Britanico is owned by an U.K.-based organization called International House.

“The trust in our institution from everyone of you is invaluable for us, however, it is a decision that we have thought about deeply,” the message read.
