Cemanahuac Educational Community

 

 

The Cemanahuac Educational Community will be offering programs for teachers in summer 2024, and we will  welcome teachers at all levels at any time that’s convenient for them.  

 

The impact of COVID is still being felt in both the United States and Mexico, so Cemanahuac cannot offer the two free weeks of study to a scholarship recipient in 2024 as in previous years, but they are able to offer a significant discount for any teacher who is a member of SWCOLT at a 20% reduced tuition fee for two weeks or more at Cemanahuac. Check the Cemanahuac Educational Community website for more information and 2024 program fees.

For teachers who would like to bring a group of students to live with local Mexican families and have a really great summer immersion culture and language immersion experience, Cemanahuac will work with you to develop a really unforgettable international educational experience. Contact Cemanahuac at harrietguerrero@gmail.com.
