THE TRUE VALUE OF A SUMMER PROGRAMME EXPERIENCE WITH CISS
When parents make the decision to send their child for a study abroad experience, they are making a bold investment in future success.
As we move further into the 21st century, conventional wisdom suggests that individuals are most likely to succeed if they are equipped with as many transferable skills as is possible.
These skills, including problem-solving, communication, critical thinking, and collaboration, can be applied not only throughout their careers but also through their lifetime. Study abroad programmes are uniquely positioned to help children build these complex yet foundational competencies.
At CISS, we are acutely aware of the tremendous and positive impact that our programmes have on a child’s emotional growth and personal development. We strive to offer relevant topics and content, carefully designed to lead students of all ages on a path of self-discovery and transformative learning.
Each of our programmes feature educational elements to:
- Empower students to think and act independently.
- Inspire students to be more socially aware through their exposure to people whose attitudes, values and cultures may be different from their own.
- Foster meaningful and cooperative interactions between students through group activities.
- Encourage students to negotiate through challenging situations they may encounter as a part of the communal living experience.
CISS is committed to providing enriching summer adventures, high school programmes, and homestay immersion experiences – delivered in a safe, nurturing and compassionate environment.
Choose to invest in an unforgettable learning experience for your child this summer. We invite you to make that choice Canada - with CISS!
