Mission Statement

PAX - Program of Academic Exchange is a non-profit educational organization that promotes and arranges international student exchange to foster the positive development of the world's young people and to support international peace, friendship and cross-cultural understanding.

Description

PAX--Program of Academic Exchange is a non-profit education organization whose purpose is to promote international peace, friendship and understanding through the cross cultural exchange and education of world citizens. Through its School Year USA and PAX Abroad programs, qualified students, both foreign and American, are offered the opportunity to live with a host family for five or ten months while attending high school, thus gaining a first-hand look into another culture, customs and values. At the same time, their host families, school colleagues and community have an opportunity to learn about the visitors' culture, language and values.

Would you recommend PAX--Program of Academic Exchange?

by Laurel P. from Las Vegas, NV (Administrator for this Organization) (January 20, 2009)
I volunteered as a coordinator with PAX for 2 years and am now working as a part time employee. I have been impressed at the level of support for families who host students. also, the students have been excellent quality and my school now prefers PAX students.
