Freedom to explore your passions...

WHAT DO YOU LOVE?

Living and studying in the US offers unexpected opportunities. We encourage you to experiment with new activities and pursue your interests outside of the classroom.

SET YOURSELF APART

Success in any academic field requires students to be creative and passionate. Pursuing interests outside the classroom helps you become a better student and prepare for a modern career. RIA-ELI facilitates participation in a wide variety of extracurricular activities so our students graduate with the skills they need to succeed.

 

BECOME A LEADER

RIA-ELI believes in helping students develop into strong leaders. We provide many opportunities inside the classroom and beyond, that will prepare students to thrive in their college and university experience.

CULTURAL EXCURSIONS

Our staff and student leaders work together to organize weekend cultural activities in Boston and throughout Rhode Island. Students improve their English and knowledge of American culture by touring historic sites, attending theater and art events, watching musical performances and exploring US cities. Regular local trips to the movies, shopping mall, and other attractions are also organized weekly and allow RIA-ELI students to experience daily American culture.


OUTDOOR ADVENTURES

Exploring the beautiful natural landscape of Rhode Island is a passion of our students. RIA-ELI offers many outdoor adventure trips such as hiking, camping, whitewater rafting and ski trips. These trips allow students to see and explore different areas of New England and enjoy traditional American pastimes.
