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!

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!

ISA High School is a great way to allow a student to travel abroad with freedom, but at the same time, it provided enough security that a parent didn't have to worry about how they would navigate another country. Knowing that a caring staff were with the kids or just a phone call away, made it so we could rest easy thousands of miles away!
