Mini High School

My friends from High School

The Mini High School Experience is a shadowing program where international students will have the opportunity to experience the daily life of an American high school from 4 to 8 weeks.

Students may also participate in any events and after-school activities but will not receive grades nor credits for classes attended.

The main purpose of this program is to provide students with a cultural immersion experience and to give them the opportunity to see what an American High School looks like.

Program Details

Students will stay with one of our carefully screened host families during the entire duration of the program.

Host families will provide breakfast and dinner during the week and all 3 meals on weekends and holidays.

Students will buy their own lunch at school every day.

Staying with a host family is a great opportunity for students to practice their English and experience more of the American culture.

Host families may host more than one student at the same time; therefore, students may have to share a room.

Acceptance & Visa

Once acceptance into the program has been granted, the school district will issue a Form I-20.

Students must bring the Form I-20 along with personal and financial documents to the American Consulate/Embassy in their home countries in order to apply for the F-1 visa.

Welcome Week Orientation & Activities

All students are required to arrive a few days before the official school start date in order to attend ExchangeMate USA welcome week orientation and activities in Orlando, FL. Students will stay for 3 days (2 nights) at a hotel in Orlando where they will attend arrival orientation and join ExchangeMate USA staff and coordinators in local activities, including a visit to Universal’s Islands of Adventure™ theme park.

Sports Activities

American schools offer a wide variety of sports and other extracurricular activities. Students are encouraged to join sports teams, music groups, social clubs, theater, and any other activities after school. This is a great way to socialize and make friends while improving your English!

Insurance

All international students are required to have full insurance coverage while in the program. ExchangeMate USA may offer comprehensive health insurance upon request. Students must also have all vaccines required by the state where they are going to attend school.
