Study in Arizona with an Area Request option

Sunshine year-round on your Classic High School Program

On our USA Classic exchange program, you can request to live and study in a specific region. Arizona is one of our most popular area requests. This state in the American southwest has it all – large cities with all the Americana you’d expect, warm weather all year, incredible nature and the Grand Canyon! Exchange students in Arizona always have something fun to do after school or on the weekend. Some people say it’s like California, without the ocean.

Arizona area request on the Classic High School program is available on a first come, first serve basis and it is quite popular. If space is available, we’ll place you with a welcoming host family who lives in Arizona. There is an additional fee, but you’ll only pay that add on once your Arizona placement is confirmed. Get in touch with us as early as possible to book your interview and save your spot!

Perfect for students who:

  • Want an American cultural immersion experience living with an American host family
  • Create friendships that will last the rest of your life
  • Hope to study high school in Arizona
  • Do not need to choose a specific school

Living with host family in Arizona

No matter where you are placed on our USA Classic High School program, we’ll place you with a carefully screened host family who is eager to share their home and culture with you! You will attend a high school near the host family. In addition to the support of your host family, you’ll be assigned to a Local Coordinator who will be your support contact throughout your program from beginning to end.

“The New York Soft landing camp was one of the best weeks of my entire life. There’s almost nothing more magical than walking down the boardwalk at seaside heights with friends who come from all corners of the world.”
