About Us

We are a small organization who take a very personalized approach in the process of selecting and placing each student in our program. Our goal is to find the best possible host family and school for each student. We therefore accept only a limited number of students into our program. We have public, private day and boarding schools from which to choose. Every student who joins “Global Horizons USA“ will experience a personally tailored experience in the selection of their school and their host family.

Who are we looking for?

Quality and not quantity is our motto. We are looking for students who possess a high level of “emotional intelligence” - great kids who are curious, open minded, friendly and adaptable - who have a positive attitude and an optimistic outlook towards the challenges of spending a school year abroad.

Our definition of a good student is based not solely on academic performance. We are looking for „active young people,“ students who want to adapt to their new host family, get involved in extracurricular activities and become a responsible member of their school community.
