Our International Student Program

We are thrilled to expand our international student program. We currently host 35 students from all over the world. Our students come from: Belgium, Brazil, Chile, China, France, Germany, Haiti, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Montenegro, Serbia, South Korea, and Spain.

We seek to match students to host homes that have similar interests. Our host families are making a difference in the lives of many high school students, and vice versa. Our students desire to to be immersed in American culture, while sharing their God-given gifts and talents with us. We want our students to experience an American family life from good old fashion apple pie to baseball and everything in between.

We specifically tailor curriculum to fit the needs of our international students. We offer TOEFL Prep, American History/Culture, and tutoring opportunities. We do not as that they have a specific TOEFL test score to be admitted, rather we ask that they have a working knowledge and understanding of English as a foundation that can be built upon.

If you are interested in hosting an international student, please contact Lisa Riportella at lriportella@ayusa.org
