Mission Statement

"Fostering mutual understanding and cultural exchange between the United States and other nations worldwide"


Hosting a student means welcoming an adventurous teenager into your home and treating him/her as your own son or daughter, supporting him/her through academics and other enrichment activities and including him/her in your family life and traditions throughout the year. Since 2000, Forte International Exchange Association has offered the opportunity for academic and cultural exchange to international high school students who would like to come to the United States. You can make dreams come true for one of this years students coming soon. Benefits of becoming a FORTE Host family are:

• Gaining a deeper understanding of another culture.

• Building lifelong friendships, extending family relationships.

• Sharing family values, traditions and ideals that will in turn be shared across the world.

• Host families with children give their own children an opportunity to share, think outside themselves, learn tolerance and compassion for someone who is different and create awareness for similarities that exist between each culture.

• Developing the ability to see the world from a new point-of-view while learning how to navigate through the unique challenges, personality and cultural differences that arise while hosting a young teenager far from home.

FORTE students speak English are are carefully selected based on academics and recommendations. FORTE welcomes families as diverseas our students. Whether you are:
