Guardianship Services for US boarding schools students
Cogito World Education provides comprehensive guardianship services for middle and high school students studying at US boarding schools, and whose parents live overseas.
Our updated guardianships services include assistance with emergencies related to COVID 19 and any other pandemics.
Why do parents and schools consider guardianship service for every boarding school student?
Covid 19 hugely impacted international education and provided new challenges in international travel. Schools and parents should take extra precaution to make sure that their child is fully supported and safe when studying abroad.
For a while it will be more difficult to travel internationally and domestically, arrange airport pick up, school breaks and long weekends. We created several services to accommodate changes related to international travel.
We currently offer guardianship services in these states: Massachusetts, Maine, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Vermont.
By signing guardian services with Cogito World Education your child or student will have permanent support from a responsible adult living permanently in the United States within distance no greater than 3 hours by car. In case of any emergency, school closing, delayed flight, medical emergency we will be happy to assist within 24 h. We can arrange safe school breaks and holiday stays with local host families or residential programs. Through our partner company- Colibri Boston, every year we organize Thanksgiving, Christmas and Spring breaks so students do not have to travel to their home countries.
