What We Do

High School USA offers international students a life-changing opportunity to attend high school in the U.S. and live like an American teen. Play a sport, practice English, and live in the American heartland with a welcoming host family, all while gaining skills that will last you a lifetime.

Host families come in all shapes and sizes. Some have children, while others do not; some are working families, while other are retired. CIEE strives to match students with host families based on personality traits, hobbies, curricular or extracurricular interests, family make-up, and more.

The result: You become a member of the family. That means spending time together, talking, cooking, and exploring your community; it means attending festivals and local sporting events; it means grocery shopping and barbecuing in the park. More than anything, it means building relationships that span the globe and last a lifetime.
