What students say about our school break programs:

“If you wonder what international high school students in the US can do for Thanksgiving break here is the answer. I love Cogito’s thanksgiving program because it has a great location in the middle of Boston and I met lots of new friends. My friend Danny (photo: on the left) has been coming to Cogito Thanksgiving camp for 4 years. We enjoy the tours, food, and our program leaders from Harvard and BU.”

“This Thanksgiving School Break we were in need of a local program to host our international students and were thrilled to find Cogito World Education. They designed a variety of activities that enriched our students’ academic and cultural interests. Their location in the heart of Boston is ideal for providing a truly unique New England experience. Our students reported that their rooms were nice and clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. In addition, the Cogito World Education staff sent regular email updates, pictures, and made sure that students connected with their parents at home. One of our students celebrated a birthday and the staff arranged for a cake to celebrate.”

“I liked the thanksgiving camp very much and my best activity was the game between Celtics and Bulls! So far I have seen many NBA games on tv but this was my first time going to the live game and it was so exciting! Everyone was yelling and dancing! By the way, I was on the big screen for about one or two seconds! My dad in China may have seen me on TV! I loved the game, and will go to the game next year! Thanks to all of you guys to do those things for us and will come back again.
