Academic Year Abroad is a continuation and an addition to your high school studies. Apart from attending school, students get a chance to perfect a foreign language and gain international experience. The high school exchange program is a demanding, very fun, and very unique experience. A student who spends 10 months in a foreign country is not a guest or tourist, but rather a part of a new family and community. This type of program increases maturity, develops independence, and represents the first step to many new opportunities.
All participants have full support during the program from our partner organization and its many associates who live only a short distance away from the participants.
