Lori and her daughter, Angelica, share a once-in-a-lifetime adventure in Belize.  Read Lori s impressions regarding CCSP below.

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to travel to Belize about half way through the semester and spend a few days with our daughter and a couple of the other students.  I had heard so much from our daughter about her experiences in Belize that I couldn’t wait to see it for myself.  The CCSP facilities far exceeded my expectations, the beauty of the campus, and the friendly, safe environment, were beyond what I had imagined. The many different experiences such as home stays, internships, and field trips broadened the classroom time and gave the students a sense of place and connection to the community in Santa Elena and beyond. The staff modeled a Godly response to a different culture and an appreciation for the diversity of the natural world they find in Belize. . . . Any new undertaking can be intimidating, but the difficulties or fear of the unknown, which may precede studying abroad, will be far outweighed by the depth of experience only gained by immersion in a new culture and a varied academic setting. It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend CCSP as a choice for any student wishing to study abroad!

CCSP has taken care of all the details necessary to provide our son with a stimulating life and learning experience.  They also provided a nurturing living environment for the students, yet gave them the freedom to experience a healthy independence, which contributed greatly to their growth as young adults. . . . Our son came away from CCSP much more expansive and mature.
— Sandy, parent of a New Zealand student.
I believe CCSP helped our child grow emotionally and spiritually, not to mention intellectually.
— Kevin, parent of a New Zealand student.
We think the care, concern and nurturing nature of the staff makes CCSP unique and superior to other study abroad programs.

Ray has a unique insight into CCSP because he visited New Zealand for a couple weeks during his son’s CCSP and spent a lot of time at CCSP’s campus. Here is Ray’s perspective:

From what I observed, the curriculum and timing of such were very carefully crafted and planned, and were appropriate for the setting. I felt that the students were constantly challenged and occupied, and displayed much personal responsibility. I would tell another parent that CCSP in NZ was a wonderful experience, well planned and executed by the Campus Administration in a very safe environment.
