Welcome

International Academic Programs is born with the firm conviction to provide the best possible counselling service for parents looking for a top international education for their children at the best schools located on the main English speaking countries: USA, Canada, England and Ireland.

In order to guarantee every school we promote fulfils the highest quality standards, I have personally visited each one of the centers and carefully selected a list with the best ones of each destination. Our selection of schools only includes the ones that provide the best facilities, academics, sports, music and arts programs. I have verified it after meeting with the schools responsibles and talked with current students about their experiences there and their level of satisfaction. At the travel blog you will find specific reports of each of my visits to each school in every destination. Additionaly you will find the new section, testimonials, where our students share their feedback about their programs with plenty of photos of their schools, classes, environment and weekend activities. At the end of the acedemic year I personally interview each student and their families to discuss about the success of the program.

About us

International Academic Programs is born with the firm conviction to provide the best possible counselling service for parents looking for a top international education for their children at the best schools located on the main English speaking countries: USA, Canada, England and Ireland. In a labour market as competitive as the current one with thousands of high qualified candidates for the best positions of the market, it becomes essential to provide our children with a series of key tools that will allow them to access those jobs, make a difference and stand out among their competitors, in order to grow at their respective proffesional careers.
The maturity and experience obtained after participating in the academic year abroad program, as well as mastering the most important language in business, English, constitute essential differencial factors that will become crucial advantages to your children in order to gain access to best positions in the market.

During my entire career, and specially at present, I frequently travel and visit many destinations in person in order to select the best schools we promote in each area at International Academic Programs. In every different section of the web dedicated to each destination you will find specific details of each program with interactive maps with links to every single report we have done after each school visit with the selection of the best centers in all destinations: Boarding schools in the USA, with trips to the prestigious areas of New England(Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut, Pennsylvania y Virginia)New HampshireTexasCalifornia, Florida and Hawaii. There are also options for military boarding schools for parents looking for a more disciplined environment and even a very special program for the more adventurous types and traveling lovers with our   Sailing around the world program. This exclusive program consists in living one year in a sailboat while visiting 20 different countries. For homestay alternatives we offer the USA family program with private schools in the best areas of North America: New York (Long Island), New Hampshire (Boston), Arizona (Phoenix), and Florida (Melbourne).

United States is undoubtedly one of the most prestigious destinations to study Academic Year programs since all the schools we promote at International Academic Programs have the College Prep denomination. Thanks to their academic requirements and the highest level teaching staff on the market, once the students graduate from these renowned schools, they secure places at the best Universities of the world. Many times, with important merit scholarships for academic results and sports, music or arts performances. This financial aid opportunities are only granted to the students that show the biggest efforts and allow families with limited budgets to provide their children with the highest education possible.

Regarding Canada, it has become one of the programs with the biggest growth in the last years thanks to it’s unique features, since it combines great academic programs, sports facilities, spectacular nature environments with easy access to major cities, homestay options and a very affordable cost. I have visited in person many schools in almost all provinces and put together a selection of the best centers in each area like Vancouver surroundings in British Columbia, the city of Calgary in Alberta, Toronto and other areas in Ontario, Winnipeg in Manitoba, and Newfoundland, the closest province to Europe in Canada.

Closest to Europe, and maybe ideal destinations for younger students, or for candidates going to study abroad for the first time, we have visited, selected and worked with the best boarding schools in England, specially the areas of Birmingham, Liverpool and London. Regarding Ireland, we work with almost every area in the country: Mullingar, Sligo, Limerick, Kilkenny, Cork and Dublin surroundings. These two countries, England and Ireland are perfect for parents looking to see their children more often, thanks to the proximity to other countries in Europe, and the frequent vacation periods the schools close during the academic year, that allow the students to travel back home each few weeks for each Mid Term, Christmas, and Eastern holidays.

For the more adventurous students with strong sailing interests, we have the spectacular alternative of the sailboat across the world . This incredible option allows students to live on a boat during the entire academic year and to travel to 20 different countries where they will do all kinds of field work for around 10 days each (Italy, Greece, Cuba, Barbados, Norway, USA, South Africa, France, Netherlands, Brazil…) Given the very specific nature of the program, (living on a boat without internet) it only considers very mature candidates between 17-19 years old going to study their 11th, 12th or PG programs.
