HIGH SCHOOL EXPERIENCE
Your year abroad in the USA
ATHLETES HAVE SPECIAL NEEDS
From experience we can say that the needs of athletes are very different from those of normal college students. The same applies to students who want to spend a high school year abroad in the United States.
Together with our partners in the USA, we can optimally serve exactly these needs.
COMMUNICATION IS KEY
Our motto: During the week you will always get an answer within 24 hours!
WE KNOW THE POSSIBILITIES AND PEOPLE ON SITE
We make sure that you can practice your sport at a high level all year round, that you have a suitable coach and that you have great practice conditions.

FOR THE ATHLETE EXCHANGE
THE SPORT IN THE USA
SCHOOL IN THE USA
High school covers the last 4 years up to the university entrance qualification. The school year is divided into 2 semesters and begins in August or September and ends in May/June. Your exchange year therefore lasts about 10 months.
The American school day is very similar to the European one. Classes usually start between 8 and 9 a.m. and usually end at 3 p.m. at the latest.
CHOICE OF SUBJECTS
After classes, you can also participate in a variety of recreational activities and clubs. We recommend that you check first to see if this can be combined with your athletic ambitions.
The boarding schools offer first-class rooms, a balanced diet, supervision by trained educators, and short distances to all facilities of the school. You can therefore concentrate fully on school and sports and quickly find your way to other students. And the best thing is that there are no more long journeys to school or training. Everything is within walking distance.
Of course you should not miss the experience of living with an American family. In special partner programs you have the opportunity to experience life in an American family. You have the opportunity to live with a host family on weekends, breaks and celebrate traditional holidays with the family.
The setup at a boarding school gives you a very nice insight into life on a campus and helps you decide whether a sports scholarship at a U.S. college would be an option for you after your year abroad at an American high school and your high school graduation.
