CIEE is one of the world’s largest non-profit study abroad organization. Established in 1947, we operate in more than 30 locations worldwide. Every year, we help thousands of students live the experience of a lifetime. On our programs, students can learn one of 7 languages or dive into topics they are passionate about like climate change, service learning, marine science or world government.

This year, thanks to your relationship with Wayside, a student in your school could get a $1,000 grant to put toward a summer abroad experience with CIEE to study French, Spanish, German, Italian, Chinese, Japanese or Arabic!

Demonstrated Language Growth

On CIEE Global Navigator programs, students don’t just visit. They live a full immersion complete with daily classes and excursions and a homestay. The results show for themselves. Growth in our programs is measured through a pre-post administration of the STAMP 4S assessment by Avant, using matched cases. On average, in one month of CIEE programming students gain the equivalent of a whole year of high school language instruction!*

*National averages derived by Avant from high school language proficiency assessments administered nationally in 2015–2016
