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!

I've never had a negative experience with ISA! Every staff member that I''ve interacted with has been positive, fun, and extremely supportive. Everyone is very helpful. The ISA London staff is great and the office is in a very convenient location!

The program and excursions were well-planned. The staff with whom I interacted were highly professional and knew how to relate to teens. Everything I have heard from my daughter about the staff confirm this. She grew personally from living in another culture away from home. Plus, she had a great time.

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!
