The trust that Central America Study Abroad (CASA) enjoys and have enjoyed from its partner universities makes CASA simply one of the best Study Abroad option in Central America. Our current and previous U.S. college and university partners prefer personalized and customized programs with high academic standards and personalized attention to their students. We provide that! (Check our colleagues’ reference page or contact any of our alumni on FB, a high % of them are fans of CASA in the web).

They might refer to CEIDEPRO or to Costa Rica Study Abroad as their provider institutions, both institutions have built CASA to offer yet improved and more diverse opportunities to students looking to learn in a non-traditional way, while discovering other cultures and themselves.
