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.

We were unbelievably impressed with the staff, the information provided, how the program was run, the value of the program, the housing, the excursions including the hotels where they stayed, the activities planned and particularly the chosen community service. As my husband and I traveled to Costa Rica to enjoy a vacation with Emily at the end of the program, we had a chance to visit Emily's home and her host mother Rosario. We were very pleased with the home and location and Rosario is amazing!

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!
