REAL EXPERIENCES

  • "I was very impressed with the trip this year. I wanted to convey my admiration for the job Michelle and your crew did. I had an amazing time and the kids were part of an amazing experience that they will treasure forever. Thank you."
    George
    Director of Student Activities, The Buckley School
  • "The NAL staff last week was awesome. Every one of your folks were engaged, professional, energetic, prepared, and great to our kids. I know that does not just happen because you are 'lucky' enough to hire great people. You do find fine people, but you also train them, guide them, and 'get them' to be the fine educators that they are.  Thank you!"
