Continue your studies with accreditation in Playa del Carmen! All Distance Education, Independent Study, Online Learning Programs, and Home School Programs are welcomed.

Schools in Playa del CarmenPlaya Distance Education was created by the need to build a community for online and alternative education for students in Playa. Our goal is to provide a learning experience and classroom environment for students who are completing, or interested in completing, accredited distance education, online, or home school programs in English. Playa Distance Learning serves students from Grades 4-12, and host programs from the US, Canada, England, Australia, and France.  Students are managed by a full time teacher, Monday-Friday, and special attention is given to both students’ academic and social needs.

Students work on four major subject areas from their programs, as well as daily enrichment activities, like journals, novel study, and Spanish language and culture class. Students have an opportunity for individualized instruction from an experienced, certified bilingual teacher, as well as socialization with students from different backgrounds and countries, who share the experience of being new to Playa del Carmen.

The program is hosted at the family community center El Arbol, a unique sustainable campus located just inside the south entrance of Playacar Phase 2, behind Hospiten. Lunch and recreation occur outdoors daily, and field trips are planned bi-monthly.
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, skills for the 21st century surround virtual learning. These include:

  • Global Awareness
  • Self-directed Learning
  • Technology Literacy
  • Problem Solving Skills
  • Time Management
  • Personal Responsibility
  • Information and Communication

Schools in Playa del CarmenDistance and online education programs facilitate the opportunity for students to build skills for the 21st century. In addition, these programs are up to date, efficient, independent, flexible, as well as economical, and sometimes free, as more US states are providing online public education. Families with stateside addresses can qualify for tuition free online schooling, if their state participates.

Playa Distance Learning provides a place for families, who are new, transient, or considering moving to the area, to continue their accredited studies from their home country, while living in Playa del Carmen. The program can also serve students who are struggling in a bilingual program and may benefit from studying in one language, English, and learning Spanish as a foreign language. We enrich online schooling and distance education programs, and provide a solution for the educational needs of the individual student.

  • Build a community for online and alternative education students and their families in Playa.
