It is a privilege to say that ISA HS has many great opportunities...this trip opened my eyes and helped me understand things I did not even know. I am really looking forward to a prosperous future and you can too if you push yourself and you put effort into it.

It is a good mixture of academics and fun activities. Living with a host family is completely unique and really affects the overall experience. The staff really cares about the students. And the excursions are insanely fun!

“I felt like I became more independent naturally. After one month of living in France, I definitely experienced the culture. I felt that switch: earlier, I thought it sounded foreign when people would speak French; now, I find it weird when they don't.”

We saw Florence through new eyes: meaning and depth in paintings, sculptures, and architecture…we began to understand the environment and blend into Italian culture. Our vocabulary fridges were stocked, routines formed, and bonds were created.

It was definitely the best trip of my life. Not only did I have so much fun, my Spanish also improved greatly!

I had a blast on this trip! It was definitely an experience of a life time. When I first got here I was really afraid that I wasn't going to have fun or have any friends and I wasn't going to be better at Spanish, but ISA-HS went past my expectations! I had the most fun I have ever had! This was an incredible experience and I couldn't imagine doing it again through any other program.
