Our vision for Children Around the World is to offer unique cultural exchange programs to all students from around the world. Since our initial inauguration, our offices have worked with hundreds of school-aged students all across the United States.
We are on our way up with schools in all continental states! Our schools provide each applicant with the highest quality of education. Each student and host family has a designated area coordinator that provides support on a local level. Our desire is for every student to excel in our program, while thoroughly enjoying the American culture.
Our expertise lies in our personal one-on-one connection with each individual student which begins with an orientation upon arrival. This includes communications with international agencies, schools, and host families. We offer eligible students one and two school semester programs and various intense summer ESL programs to improve each student’s academic and conversational English skills. Upon request, semester programs can be extended with the permission of a director.
Our company recognizes that not all education is learned in the classroom. Therefore, all students enrolled in our one and two semester programs are placed in American host families and optional excursions are arranged to familiarize each student with the new culture and environment.
On a final note, nothing gives us more pleasure than watching our students succeed. Former students continually comment how valuable their American experience was for them educationally, and professionally as well as personally.
