Total Care Living ®

Mazimizes Living Experiences


Your Home Away from Home

Home Away from Home

When parents send their children abroad to study, they want their children to live in a place that provides a level of care similar to what they’d get at home. This means a safe and comfortable living environment, attention to nutrition and a healthy lifestyle, proper care if special needs arise such as sickness, and training for independent living.

Our Total Care Living® is based on a “home-away-from-home” model which delivers, in the best way possible, the kind of care parents would provide their own children at home. By providing a healthy and safe on-campus life outside the classroom, CIC’s Total Care Living removes the pressures that other international students face when they live off campus, away from home.

How students are maturing is intimately connected
to how they perform academically.

That’s why we record assessments of their life at CIC alongside their academic assessments, all in the same centralized information system – our Total Care Student Tracker®. This gives our staff – and parents – a complete picture of every student’s needs – academic, social, emotional, and physical. Such a picture is only possible when school and life are properly integrated, an advantage that off-campus living arrangements (be they rented apartments or home-stay) are simply unable to match. By creating a supportive, healthy environment for international students, Total Care Living fosters socialization, reduces stress, helps our students be successful.
