With our SAT Prep Summer Program (June 23rd) and English Language Summer Program (July 1st) about to begin, we are excited to welcome our students to Boston. We know that Boston is the best place for international students to study in the Summer, so let’s count down the 5 reasons why!

  1. Eat Great Food from around the World

Boston is known for it’s incredible restaurants with cuisine from all over the world.

Boston Common is an incredible place to relax and enjoy the beautiful Boston weather. Bring a picnic and play frisbee with your friends. There are public boat rentals on the Charles River if you want to kayak, paddleboard, or canoe, with breathtaking views of Boston. Boston Harbor is the best place in the city to watch the sun go down, while checking out the array of ships in our arsenal.

  1. Celebrate July 4th in one of the US most historical cities

Every year, we take our students to see the fireworks over the Charles River in Boston. This is a sight to see, with people lining the streets to see the flurry of colors fill the sky. Historical events like The Boston Tea Party and Boston Massacre directly lead to the American independence, which is celebrated on July 4th. Enjoy the biggest celebration of the year next to native Bostonians.

“I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for being patient, understanding, caring towards me for the past year. The scholarship helped a lot in getting my visa. You sure do know how to do a brilliant work and if there is any way I could take a survey about your services at Cogito, I would give you a 10 out of 10.”
