Classic High School offers everything that made international study exchange popular. You’ll live with a host family, take classes in fun subjects with engaging, friendly teachers, and make friends through extracurricular clubs and activities.
Where you study in the USA depends on the location of your host family. Once you’re matched with them, you will be placed at the local high school. With your host family’s support and guidance, you’ll be living the life of an American high school student in no time.
Southern Cross Cultural Exchange students typically enrol in the third year (as juniors) or in the fourth year (as seniors). As a Classic High School student, you can go abroad for one semester starting in the August or January (departures subject to location in the USA) or the entire academic year.
Regardless if you head to the rolling hills of Montana, the windy city of Chicago, the glitz and glamour of Los Angeles or the sunny coastline of Florida, there is so much diversity within the vast land that makes up the USA that it’s no wonder it’s become such a popular destination for a student exchange program.
America is a goal-oriented, ‘can-do’ society that strives to give opportunity to all its citizens to reach their full potential of ‘life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.’ There is an overall cultural norm of hardworking and very open-minded people, with a wonderfully unique brand of hospitality. Exchange students are welcomed with expressive open arms and will love the unbelievable school pride they will experience in their new classroom.
“Take every opportunity you get! Try everything you possible can and never give up.”
