Let's Begin!


We’re at it again!

 Welcome to CCI’s 21st year in operation. As always, we have a lot planned for our students and I will be sharing our journey with you through this blog.  I invite you to also explore this website to learn more about our program.


This year, started with a visit to the beach in nearby Ortona. I find that this is a great way for students to get to know each other and bond before classes begin.


To my delight, before we even arrived at the beach, our young people we already laughing and singing together on the bus as if they had known each other for years! So, maybe we didn’t need all of the icebreaker games on the beach after all. A special thanks to our 2015 grad, Freddy, who came to Lanciano to see old friends and help new students adjust.

After a great day, we had dinner at the Allegria (this is were we eat most nights). A typical meal consists of fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables, meats, cheeses, and of course pasta!

 What an excellent start to the year.
