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.

My daughter grew up with her ISA-HS experience. What a fantastic experience to do this program with teens from all over the world. The classes and tours were all a bonus, but the fact that she has numerous friends from around the globe that she can keep in contact with on facebook, etc is priceless!

ISA-HS Cusco provided an awesome opportunity for our daughter to gain international travel experience, develop self-confidence, develop her Spanish skills, and engage in a life-changing cultural experience!

I would recommend ISA-HS to other parents because your kids get to experience making real decisions on their own with the proper amount of oversight, put themselves out there, get immersed in a language, and travel with new people to see new things. Excellent experience for my daughter!
