HIGH SCHOOL

The High School Experience Program offered by InterAct USA is designed to meet students’ goals and parents’ expectations. Because the academic intensity of a student’s high school curriculum is a significant factor in college acceptance consideration, attending high school abroad offers an unparalleled opportunity. InterAct USA selects private day and boarding schools for their solid reputations, featuring academic excellence and small class sizes that promote individualized attention and foster group discussion.

The classroom culture abroad is often quite different from what international students might be used to, incorporating more student participation rather than traditional lecture. There is no better way to get familiar with international life and learning than through first-hand experience as a student in a high school abroad. As a participant in InterAct USA’s high school program, the international student gains invaluable knowledge on the pathway leading to a college education. Watch your English fluency improve and your academic performance excel!
