-"MEI International Academy is an amazing company. The trips provide memories of a life-time and it is an exceptional way to obtain high school credits. The teachers are so caring about the students, and the group truly becomes a family. The students are all good, smart kids and this provides an amazing learning environment. All the events of MEI Academy help prepare you for university and for life, and I would recommend anyone presented with this opportunity take it!"

"It is a great opportunity and well known organization. They have been running this program for a long time, and it has a great reputation. They would never take students to an area dubbed Unsafe. The curriculum will be recognized and not having Diploma exam marks for those two courses will not be an issue for University applications" -Mr. Kufeldt (Guidance counselor)
