Ricardo '22

Costa Rica
2022

Ricardo moved away from his warm hometown of San José, Costa Rica to Connecticut in pursuit of his soccer goals and to explore new environments. As a competitive student-athlete on the prep soccer team, he describes his experience at The Woodstock Academy as a “very good experience for students who want good academics and to meet people from different places.”

Now graduated, Ricardo was a senior with confidence in his next steps. He loves to learn and live in the moment, which is why his favorite course at The Academy was Current Affairs. “I enjoy learning about things that are happening right now and events that are currently affecting the world.”

During his only and final year as a Centaur, Ricardo accomplished two simple goals: to finish strong academically and to leave WA with new friends and lifelong relationships. Looking to the future, Ricardo hopes to commit to an NCAA Division I university for soccer and plans to study Business Management with a minor in Marketing.

“I will take the experience of living here and what it means to be in a different environment with me for the rest of my life.”
