A Letter From Our Founder
EduAbroad has a simple mission:
to always provide personal service with sensitivity to the individual needs of both parent and child.
Most foreign students arrive in the United States with no friends or family to watch out for them. I understand these issues on a personal level—when I was a student,
I studied in many foreign countries and often felt overwhelmed by the stress caused by being away from my family, and by the cultural differences and language barriers. I started EduAbroad because I wanted to provide these students with the personal attention and care that only a parent can give.
As a parent myself, I understand the difficult decision to send your child abroad; although the opportunity is great, it is tough for a parent to hand over control of their child to people they don’t know. Often times, education companies do not directly provide parents with the resources they need to connect and stay involved with their student. This can lead students to struggle in finding the right path for their educational journey. I started EduAbroad with a simple mission: to provide personal service with sensitivity to the individual needs of both parent and child.
