Why travel with Common Ground International (CGI)?

We’re different from most student travel programs. We specialize in taking a deep dive into Spanish and cultural immersion. It’s like a study abroad program for teens but with the safety parameters and leadership for high school students. Teens walk away with…

  • More fluency in Spanish

  • A deeper respect for diverse lifestyles & cultural perspectives

  • More maturity, independence & appreciation of their home life

  • A global perspective

  • Friends & family from Latin America

  • A life-changing experience (great for college applications)
