Parent testimonials

We understand that sending your child to a foreign country can be emotionally difficult. KEI will assist throughout the entire process. We pride ourselves on our dedication and quality of service. Below are a few quotes from parents of KEI alum. Student reviews provide additional testimonials from the perspective of program participants.

Gina H. Hola Dearest Nancy,

How can I ever really thank you for all that you have done for our family? From the moment I read your first email to Matt, I knew that this was a special woman coming into our lives. Your care, compassion, understanding of Matt has been amazing. You have been there for him every step of the way always giving him the love and support that a mother would give.

How blessed we have been to have our very own Peruvian mother helping!

Jacqueline R. I have spoken with Justin a few times since his arrival in Russia. He said he is having the time of his life. He had hoped the trip would be a dream come true, but it is so much better than he ever thought possible. Truly it is sometimes difficult to understand what he is saying because he is laughing and so excited the entire time he talks. He is not only using his Russian language skills but is also brushing up on his French as some of his new friends are French and his "group" speaks to each other in Russian, French and English. The entire time I am speaking to him other students are in and out of the room making plans etc. and all are from different countries and cultures. What an amazing opportunity you provide, what an experience!!

I can't thank you enough for all you did to make this possible, especially to Julie (Julie Pollard, KEI Director of Operations) who encouraged us to submit the application even though it was so close to the deadline when we discovered the program and to the KEI staff who were so helpful with all the last minute passport/visa issues. Justin said the Onsite Director is wonderful and a huge asset to the program.

Thank you also for the mobile phones you provide. It is so helpful to be able to have contact by dialing a number, and not have to wait until Justin finds an internet cafe.

I would highly recommend KEI to anyone with students hoping to go abroad. You have taken what could be a very stressful situation and made it the experience of a lifetime.

Thank you thank you thank you.

Jill G. I wanted to take a moment to thank you for giving my daughter an incredible summer. She loved her experience abroad. The Onsite Director was the perfect group leader - warm, caring, involved, and willing to help with problems as they arose. Thanks to your terrific supervision and care everything ran smoothly and all the students had a great time.

Patrick M. It was a perfect storm of confluences. This last summer my daughter was able to get an internship with an astrophysicist at the Harvard Smithsonian Astrophysics Center in Boston/Cambridge. I credit the KEI program and her research internship in Thailand for making this possible. Jenny has kept in touch with her mates from the program and they have all done amazingly well too.

Thanks Again.
