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.

Thank you so much for such a wonderful program in Costa Rica. Adam returned home happier than I’ve ever seen him. He had the best time. He loved his host family, made lots of friends, learned a lot, and gained confidence in his Spanish. His grammar teacher was phenomenal. The weekend excursions were the highlights of the month. Most important of all, he became more assured in his ability to handle different situations, like being in a foreign country and away from home for a month. He came through with flying colors!

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!
