Our exchange students
Hailing from 13 countries across Europe and Asia, our exchange students are eager to join your family, learn about our diverse American culture and get involved in your local high school. They have earned admission onto our program based on a rigorous review of their motivation, personality, health, grades and teacher recommendations. We are excited for you to meet them!

Why students participate in an exchange year
Exchange students grow tremendously as a person. They develop cultural awareness, independence, maturity, self-confidence, self-awareness, grit, adaptability, problem-solving skills, leadership— and much more.
Fluency in English
Exchange students with a solid grasp of English become truly fluent. By the end of their time away they are able to speak, read, and write English more naturally and with greater ease.
Exchange students also become fluent in the culture, customs, and traditions of another country, and become an ambassador for the place they called home during their exchange.
Our students are eager to gain a second family and make friendships for life. Many of our host families and students are in touch for years to come and consider themselves family.
