This refers to the regular classes, not the special teachers seminar offered again this year July 10–24. If the teacher who received the scholarship wants to attend the seminar, the extra fee for field study trips and other activities would be $235. And a single room request would be an extra $10 per night. The family housing includes all meals.
Cemanahuac will openfor regular classes, on May 17, generally students arrive in Cuernavaca on Saturdays prior to the start of classes. Choose your dates after this date to attend classes. Your scholarship covers two weeks.
This year as we know, is an unusual year for traveling abroad. Cemanahuac Educational Community requires students to have both doses of the Covid vaccine before they arrive to Mexico, as well as insurance which covers Covid. Although a Covid test is not required to enter Mexico from the U.S., flights to the USA from Mexico do require a Covid test carried out less than 72 hours before flight time. Those tests are costing US$35.00 to US$50 per traveler.
