Centro Bilingue Amerindia
Centro Bilingüe Amerindia (CBA) is a Spanish school in Quetzaltenango (or Xela), Guatemala, founded in 1989. The school offers classes in Spanish and in various Mayan languages. CBA also connects volunteers with a variety of work opportunities in surrounding communities. We donate 10% of each student´s tuition to local, sustainable development projects.
This family owned and operated school, authorized by INGUAT and the Ministry of Education, provides a warm atmosphere and intensive Spanish immersion.
The Guatemala Tourist Commisssion has issued some guidelines to help you enjoy your vacation in Guatemala.

To complement the immersion program, CBA offers extracurricular activities for our students (in Spanish of course!).
