Meet the CEPA Team

What makes us different?

Well, it is not just our professionalism and expertise that set our staff apart. We are a small but versatile team of study abroad professionals and feel pretty strongly that our personal approach and the fact that we know Europe like the back of our hands gives us a clear advantage over other study abroad providers.

Our work is more than just a job; we are passionate about what we do and it is something we truly believe in every step of the way. We are not just creating travel adventures, we create opportunities for students by developing high-quality, cultural immersive, and cost effective study abroad programs.
