This was an incredible opportunity for Sam. It broadened his horizons, he made new friends, and of course expanded his knowledge of the language and the culture. The staff was very friendly, helpful, and available. This made it easier to send our son on his first trip to study abroad.

My daughter's self-esteem was greatly influenced by her trip to Costa Rica; she had fun and was able to help children in great need. She has decided to study teaching and wants to travel to outside the USA and help children like the ones she encountered in Heredia, Costa Rica. It seems that in just a week she matured several years. Thank you for giving children this opportunity, excellent work.

The staff was great, very responsive and organized. The trip was incredible from start to finish. Hannah had traveled to Costa Rica with another program last summer and tells me that the ISA-HS was "way better!!" If she can go next summer, I will send her again!

Trust your children will learn and grow so much during their time abroad. My son made so many new friends from around our country and got to experience a history in culture and lifestyle they can't experience here. It was a wonderful life changing time for him and I'm so happy we and ISA could give that to him!
