In-person classes

We know that many students are looking forward to an in-person learning experience, and we intend to deliver it. We plan to return to the in-person format in the summer (from July 5th).  Enrollment for the in-person program will be limited to provide students and staff a safe learning space. Advance reservations are strongly encouraged.

Tuition: The cost of tuition is: 1,600 Guatemalan Quetzales* per week, in addition to a non-refundable US$75 registration fee. The tuition includes 5 hours of class, 5 days a week (Monday-Friday) plus activities outside class (talks, movie screenings, walks, etc.)

Homestay is optional. The cost of room and board is Q 700 per week per person. For homestay service, the school must be paid with cash in advance.

* We accept tuition payments only via cash, VISA or Mastercard credit/debit card at the school.

Upon request, private transportation from/to the airport can be arranged for an additional fee.

Students can opt to stay in hotels, hostels, Airbnb rental properties or others. We will provide suggestions of places to stay along with other travel information in the welcome packet. Limited number of homestays are available for fully vaccinated students! 

To enroll, please choose where you would like to register:


After submitting your Application

You will be contacted within 3-5 business days of receiving your application.  To confirm your place, we’ll ask you to submit a US$75 registration fee. If you register as a group/family  (3 or more students) the registration fee is US$200.

We recommend that you submit the application well in advance to register for classes during the summer months of June, July and August.

Please read carefully the following information regarding registration fees and conditions.



1. We will reply to your registration form to tell you whether there is space at PLQ/the Mountain School during your desired dates. If there is, you will be asked to submit a $75 payment to secure your space.

2. If you are a new student, that $75 payment will be a non-refundable registration fee. If you studied with us in the last two years, that $75 payment will be a tuition deposit that will go toward your first week of study and is refundable as long as your reservation is cancelled more than 2 weeks before you are scheduled to start studying.

3. For groups/ families (3 or more students) the registration fee is $200.

4. Cancellation Policy: Changes to your reservation may be made up to two weeks before you start class. Beginning two weeks before your start date, including once you arrive, there is a fee of 50% of a week´s tuition for any weeks that you cancel. Switching schools (between PLQ and the Mountain School) is possible under the following conditions: 1.5 weeks of advance notice, for up to 2 weeks of class.
