Real Stories from Real Students:

Here I learned how to be more comfortable with myself. I learned to ask questions and be active. I’ll always remember the first time I woke up and there was snow on the ground and the first time I performed in the school Marching Band, or the first dinner I had with my host family. I’ll always remember the wild pep assemblies, the homecoming dance, and the prom!
