Mission Statement

We are proud of the ISE organization. We have designed a company that attempts to put the students, schools, and families above all else. Our goal of bringing people of the world closer together is what motivates our national and regional offices on a daily basis.

We know we can, and do, affect change within our ever-shrinking world. The love and care that our families and schools display toward our students are what make our organization successful.

Knowing we are involved in a lofty and difficult mission makes us strive for perfection. The knowledge gained by a home-stay and school experience affects everyone. We thank: you, our families, schools and International Representatives for helping us make such a wonderful endeavor possible.


Based on materials submitted by ISE and reviewed by the Council on Standards for International Educational Travel (CSIET), an independent national educational organization founded in 1984, ISE has been granted a listing every year. In 2009, ASA International, DM Discoveries, and INTO Ed Ventures were merged with ISE. Indicative of its high level of professionalism and respect within the foreign exchange industry, ISE is designated by the Department of State as an official sponsor of the Exchange Visitor Program.

ISE is headquartered on Long Island, 60 minutes from Manhattan. Forty-four fully staffed Regional Offices are strategically located in the United States. ISE cooperates with over 100 independent foreign agencies in over 45 countries around the world for the recruitment and placement of students in American homes.

Your Des Moines Area Representative is available by phone or email to answer questions about our program or hosting a foreign exchange student.
