Our Mission

We at EduAbroad believe that every student should have the opportunity to reach their educational goals and dreams. From primary school to university, we specialize in providing all the services that foreign students need to find their path in the United States. Education is a personal journey—what separates us from other education companies is our commitment to providing personal service and nurturing care. Attending school in a foreign country can be scary and overwhelming. That’s why we are here—to hold your hand the whole way.

Our Story

EduAbroad is one of the leading education consulting firms in California. We deliver high quality educational services to students from around the world who choose to study on a long-term basis or participate in a wide variety of camps in the United States.

Over the past 16 years, EduAbroad has developed a reputation for innovative programs with an emphasis on unique experiences and the safety of students. With its headquarters located in San Diego, California, EduAbroad is staffed by a team of 20 multilingual advisors who understand the languages and cultural differences of the countries we serve.

A Letter From Our Founder

Most international students arrive in the United States with few 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 responsibility of their child to people they don’t know. Oftentimes, education agencies do not equip parents with the resources they need to stay involved with their child’s progress. This can lead students to struggle in adjusting to American life and 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.

The immigration policies and visa laws of the United States can be extremely complicated and difficult to navigate. Our counselors work to make it very simple. Our immigration services are designed to allow the student to focus on the difficult process of entering a new school and country without having to cope with additional immigration and visa problems. Once a student begins his or her education in the United States, our legal department is here to offer protection and guidance in case things change or situations arise.

Legal Services

We work closely with an associated law firm to provide even greater depth of service for our clients. The firm’s focus is on accreditation, management, and consulting services relating to school management and transnational legal issues. The close association between the firm and EduAbroad also enables our handling of immigration, investment visas, and other issues that may arise.

Visa Services

EduAbroad offers consulting services on a wide variety of immigration issues. We specialize in EB-5 Visa consultation and regional center project analysis. For EB-5 clients, we provide investment management services. EduAbroad also works on education issues as they relate to immigration, provides consultation for visa interviews, and assists clients with immigrating to the U.S. for the purpose of education.
