Becoming a high school foreign exchange student

A high school study abroad program is an eye-opening experience. Many students do not go abroad until university, so you'll be getting an educational head start. Our high school exchange programs also vary in length and objective. Our private high school study abroad programs offer a full high school education in English.

Some programs are designed for foreign students, and our graduates continue on to English-speaking universities, including some very prestigious institutions like Harvard and Cambridge. But we have many other study abroad opportunities as well, from short-term summer study abroad programs for high school students to long-term language courses, university preparation classes, and high school exchange programs.

Study abroad programs for high school students

There's no better way to become proficient at a language than by studying at a young age. Enrolling in a high school study abroad program improves your foreign language skills, which is a major asset to your future studies and career. Completing all or part of a high school study abroad program will give you a big leg up, whatever your future goals may be.

Not only will your language skills improve, but you'll gain in independence and come home with an entirely new perspective on what it means to be a citizen of the world. Whichever high school study abroad program you choose, you can be certain that you won't soon forget all that you learn while studying in a foreign country.
