The Zource, a family owned business, is dedicated to “Building Bridges to Success” to encourage international connections and experiences through individually designed and diversified, private high school opportunities. The Zource is committed to promoting peace in the world between people of all nations and inspiring understanding through direct contact and helping all people gain tolerance, respect, integrity and education. The Zource has students on academic year and semester programs with a wide variety of educational opportunities to prepare them for the challenges of college level courses. We also have short term homestay opportunities for international students attending boarding schools and ESL academic year and summer programs.
The Zource operates through a network of international representatives, in a variety of States, who provide support on a local level. Representatives coordinate school acceptance, work with the private schools, and serve as liaisons with the national office. Representatives’ interview and screen host families and counsel host families throughout the year. International representatives submit monthly reports and mentor students regularly by allowing them to discuss their program experience and any emotional or academic concerns. We want to work with the student’s individual needs so that they can achieve lifelong success in all they do on our program and in their future endeavors.
Academic Year Program - United States—International students in grades 9 through 12, travel to the United States, attend private high schools only on an F-1 visa, and live with a U.S. host family. Our well-chosen private high schools are diverse, and have a variety of academic programs. With many schools to choose from students and natural parents will find a range of tuitions offered. Students may choose to stay with this program for several years and may choose to graduate depending on school requirements. Students must complete an application in English, complete an English language proficiency test, submit transcripts translated into English, present school and teacher references, and write an autobiographical essay. Students and parents are interviewed prior to acceptance. Upon acceptance, students are required to attend several orientations. The orientations conducted address issues such as American culture, English language, program rules, safety, and how to make the most of the U.S. high school experience.
