For Parents


Safety is the number one priority on all of our international study abroad programs. We do not conduct any programs in countries that are listed by the US State Department with a Travel Warning.

Every program that we offer is led by Castleton University faculty Jim Hagan or Shelley Warren. We depart with all students and accompany them during the entire study abroad program. Our destinations are only countries in which we have lived and traveled during the last 25 years.

We provide all parents with an emergency contact list of all hotels with dates and phone numbers so that students can be contacted at all times during their study abroad. We encourage all parents to contact us with any questions about our programs and safety of their students.


We offer a suggested list of immunizations for each particular country of study and require that all students have emergency evacuation insurance.
