Each year, international high school students representing more than 60 nationalities come to the U.S. to experience American culture as part of CIEE’s USA High School program. Students live as typical American teenagers—attending a U.S. high school, living with an American host family, and participating in extracurricular activities and sports. During their stay, students also give back to their host communities through many volunteering and community service opportunities. Through its USA High School program, CIEE provides life-changing cultural exchanges that help students, families, and schools gain new perspectives and develop lifelong relationships that cross borders and cultures
