Supporting High School Students
Our goal is for your to have a positive, life-changing experience no matter where you study with CET. But life-changing experiences don’t happen without learning from challenges encountered along the way. Perhaps this is the longest you’ve been away from home and homesickness hits you harder than expected. Maybe you’re experiencing culture shock for the first time. Or you find your coursework is harder than you anticipated. No matter what issues arise, CET staff are there for you! Program staff are accessible 24/7 and are there to help you navigate road blocks and build resilience.
And before you even depart for your program, CET advisors are available to assist with program selection, academic concerns, financial questions, health and safety, and any other topics. Before you know it, you will be back home, reflecting on how much you learned and how different you have become because of your time on a CET program.
With over 35 years of experience in study abroad, CET has a strong track record with risk and crisis management. We rely on careful planning and preparation, well-trained overseas staff with local knowledge and contacts, professional resources in the US and abroad, and regular review and communication about potential issues.

CET believes in making study abroad accessible to all students. We recruit and actively support academically qualified students of all races, religions, origins, abilities, gender identities, and sexual orientations, ensuring a welcoming, hospitable program environment that promotes student learning.

Each program is staffed by on-site professionals familiar with the location and fluent in the local language. All staff are available to assist and support students throughout their term abroad, from in-country orientation through the end of the program and beyond. Program staff are in touch daily with CET staff in the U.S. and provide a bridge between our students and the local community. Learn more about staff support.
