Our job

What we stand for

We are an educational student exchange program, whose mission is to foster educational and cultural student exchange. Our goal is to make the student exchange experience enriching for everyone involved; the students, the host families and the high schools.

We are a small organization who takes 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 provide a personalized service for you, your parents, host families and schools. You’ll soon realize that our goal is to make the most of your talents, hobbies and interests at your new school.

We examine all possible options, from public / private high schools to boarding schools.
We are passionate about helping each of our students have a memorable year in the US. Not only will cultural boundaries be broken, it will broaden your horizons in a special way.

Your success and your future are our daily drive!

Our vision

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 attending an American High School.

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.

Our host families

You will become a family member

The carefully selected host families provide a nice home and food. You will be treated as a family member, learn more about the exciting American Way of Life and culture of the USA. You are responsible for your flight, health insurance, tuition and fees for your school and spending money.

We organize everything else for you!
