International Student Life In California
What is it really like to study at CISL and live in San Diego or San Francisco? Since 1972, CISL has provided international students with accommodation and activities that make their English-learning experience memorable. From school-organized outings to professionally organized accommodation, CISL offers its students the opportunity to make the most of their time in California.
From warm and welcoming homestays with American families to premier hotels and social student residences, CISL offers students at San Diego and San Francisco accommodation options that match each student’s needs. Both CISL San Diego and CISL San Francisco have a dedicated Homestay & Accommodation Coordinator to ensure students are comfortable in their accommodation.
CISL is dedicated to ensuring all students enjoy their CISL experience inside and outside of the classroom! Our school-organized activities offer students the opportunity to see all that beautiful San Diego and San Francisco have to offer in regard to museums, restaurants, neighborhoods, festivals, and activities. Pick up our Monthly Activities Calendar to read about the month’s after-school and weekend activities, and check out the sign-up sheet at school to participate in any of our exciting excursions.
