This program is specially recommended for those students who wish to study 9th or 10th grade in the US, but are not 15 years old by August 1st. It is also recommended to those who want to choose the school or the State, but who still want to enjoy a full immersion experience with an American host family, who has been selected with the maximum care. This program also allows the student to return to Spain during the vacation periods, like Christmas or Easter week, and the family visits throughout the year.
Speak and Travel, together with their partner agency in the US, has prepared a selected list of private schools, with many different prices and conditions. Most schools allow enrollment for a semester or an entire academic year. The students will have to choose 3 schools out of the list. Once the student has been accepted in the private school, a host family will be searched, who will receive a small compensation for hosting.
It is impossible to show a standardized description of these schools, but all of them have something in common: academic excellence. Some of them have a religious affiliation, others are more liberal, some may require a uniform and others may just have a dress code… Most of them have a very large list of sports activities, and some schools are specialized in some cultural activities like dance, or theater, or music, etc…
If you wish to enroll in a particular school or in a particular State, with specific activities, let us know, and we will do our best to find it.
