To promote global understanding, one exchange student, one family at a time.
EF High School Exchange Year: Our mission is to promote international understanding and global awareness across the United States, and to do so with the highest level of program quality and participant support in the exchange community.
EF High School Exchange Year is the leader in high school exchange. We bring more international students to the United States each year than any other program in our industry. We place approximately 3,000 students each year with caring host families. Since 1979, we have matched over 100,000 enthusiastic students from around the world with families across the United States.
We are responsible for coordinating every aspect of the student exchange process once students arrive in the United States. We find host families; enroll students in school; and provide students, hosts and schools with ongoing support and guidance to ensure a successful exchange year.
