My daughter spent her first summer at St. Andrews and loved it so much she went back the following summer to Cambridge. The program is well-run, and the classes and activities are terrific! I have recommended this program to many people and will continue to do so.

My daughter returned from St Andrews a more confident and positive person. She remains friends with those she met some three years later and I cannot recommend it highly enough. The following year she attended the Cambridge campus with just as positive an experience and still talks of the wonderf...

The whole ISSOS team takes very much care of everything and they help you in case of any problems. The kids have lots of fun and they learn a lot during the three weeks at ISSOS. That‘s the reason why our son will return. Thanks!

Issos was an enchanting experience for my son. He met many boys and girls from different Countries and he had a perfect mix between sport (golf especially), study and jokes. So, I can suggest absolutely!

ISSOS has been AMAZING. I liked it so much that I went for four consecutive years. I made so many new friends from all over the world with which I still keep in touch, and I feel that this is something amazing. It taught me how to adapt to the boarding school I eventually went to and to the unive...

ISSOS, contrary to all other camps I have stayed at, has made me feel at home. I have met the most amazing people, most of which I am still friends with today. Over these three weeks you become so close to these people that it's hard to leave at the end of the camp. Every individual is so special...

My 14 year old son Charlie had a great time at St. Andrew's. He was a bit nervous when we dropped him off, but when we went to collect him he was brimming with excitement and reluctant to say goodbye to his new friends. He especially enjoyed the debating course, but also just the fresh air and fr...

We sent our son Luca to Issos St. Andrews and it was one of the best decisions we ever made. He came back more confident and full of stories of amazing experiences he had and of the new friends he made. The whole program was well rounded and his counselors were great teachers. The only thing that...

I spent two summers at ISSOS, one in Cambridge 2016, and one in Yale 2017. I made a lot of very good friends during that time, and I loved it a lot. Also, the two campuses, and the structure of the day was so different at the two campuses. So going twice is definitely not a bad idea!
