The CMS Study Abroad Office partners with local, national and international organizations to provide programs of study to meet individual student interests and needs. CMS does not place students abroad. Our office provides guidance to families on how to find and apply for study abroad programs and scholarship opportunities. Study abroad programs offer students the unique opportunity to increase their understanding of themselves and the world.
Our goal is to encourage CMS students to explore the interaction between world cultures, to look at ways in which the "world" has an interconnected history and to study the languages of our global community. Understanding the ways in which cultures interact and influence each other is vital to the future success of our students, schools, community and nation.
The CMS Study Abroad Office works with study abroad agencies that are approved by the Council on Standards for International Educational Travel (CSIET). CSIET identifies reputable international youth exchange programs, provides leadership and gives support to the exchange and educational communities.
