The Land of Liberty and Opportunity
Reach for the stars and stripes.
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.
The USA offers two program types: Classic and Select. With our Classic Programs, students will live with a local host family and go to a local school, while Select gives the additional option to choose the exact region they go to. The Select Program opens an exchange student up to many many options, and comes at an extra cost, therefore it is best to speak to our North American specialist to understand what is available.
