2 As a child, my parents founded what was then, the first mixed bilingual boarding school in Colombia, South America. Ever since, I have been surrounded by international educators and immersed in a multicultural environment. The thirst of my parents to instill in their children, languages and cultural awareness, was vivid throughout our entire upbringing and is still a driving force for us today. A series of events led us to discover other horizons and opportunities in unchartered territories. This brought us to Miami, where in 1998, a small stand-alone language school opened and OHLA was born. Inspired by the unconditional dedication of my family, the growth of OHLA was achieved because of the unparalleled commitment to its students, staff and faculty members, and network of representatives from all over the world. Also, as a part of our core belief in total student care, OHLA has become a leader in empowering students to reach their higher education goals through our extensive University Gateway Program. We are proud to welcome, each year, thousands of students from over 66 nationalities. Today my family members are still involved with OHLA's day- to-day operations and each keeps on embracing every OHLA newcomer as a valued member of our own family. When you come to OHLA, you come to an award-winning language school with endless opportunities for higher education and the satisfaction of pursuing your academic dreams while meeting people from all over the world. When you come to OHLA, you will become part of our family.
