Established in August 2007, Cap Cana Heritage School (CCHS) is an American based English private school located in the planned resort and residential community of Cap Cana, in La Altagracia, the eastern most province of the Dominican Republic. The School is the third educational institution of Educacion Integral, a well known organization with over 30 years of educational success.
CCHS consists of a preschool program (ages 1-5), an elementary program (grades 1-5), and middle/high school program (grades 6-12). Students arrive from townships spanning 25 miles including Bavaro, Cabeza de Toro, Cap Cana, Punta Cana, and Uvero Alto. The School community is culturally and internationally diverse with 24 nations represented. Most student families are from the Dominican Republic, followed by Spain, the United States, and Venezuela. Approximately 90% of CCHS students live in dual parent households where two or more languages are spoken. Spanish is most often spoken, followed by English. Tourism and related support industries are the primary employers in the community.
CCHS is recognized by the Dominican Republic Ministry of Education and is a candidate for SACS accreditation. The School is a member of the TRI Association, the Association of Columbian- Caribbean American Schools (ACCAS), and the Inter-Regional Center.
