Study Abroad with ISE
About Our Study Abroad Program
Studying abroad and living like a local is more than a vacation away from daily life, it is a transformative experience that contributes to increased creativity, collaboration, and personal development. Exchange students will acquire a global awareness through which respectful discourse can occur and new perspectives can be shared. In a world where internationally-informed thinkers are under increasing demand, exchange students have a unique advantage.
Students can earn this advantage by embarking on an international exchange with ISE. Our short-term cultural exchange programs of up to 2 months and our longer high school programs of up to 12 months will take participants to exciting new places, allowing them to live with a caring host family and experience local life.
Our high school programs are designed to give exchange students a distinct academic edge. While abroad, students will be enrolled in a full course of study at a local high school and live with a vetted and approved host family or in program-sanctioned dorms. These programs typically last from 3-12 months. Programs typically start in either September or January, with enrollment deadlines 4-5 months prior to your program start date.
Our cultural programs allow for a more flexible stay. Exchange students enrolled in this program live with an approved host family, experience local culture, and have the option to attend supplemental language camps. These programs typically last from 1-8 weeks. Enrollment is continuous throughout the year and the application deadline is 60 days before the program start date.
