Mission Statement

To help people gain understanding, acquire knowledge and develop skills for living in a globally interdependent and culturally diverse world.

Description

For nearly 20 years, CIEE: Council on International Educational Exchange has been offering high school students from around the world the opportunity to live and study in the United States. CIEE USA High School has grown from a handful of participants when the program was founded in 1995, to more than 1,600 students, representing 55 countries. We place them with caring, nurturing families in communities from coast to coast, where they attend one of more than 1,000 partner schools.

We firmly believe that a 21st century education should include cultural exchange. Participating in exchange, whether a student or a host, exposes people to new viewpoints, breaking down barriers and increasing understanding. These are the building blocks of a better world.

Today, CIEE is the global leader in international education and cultural exchange, and CIEE USA High School is just one of our many programs. More than 300,000 people proudly call themselves CIEE alumni. We give students from high school through college the chance to study abroad, send English teachers around the world, welcome students to the United States for school and work, and support educators as they work to globalize their institutions from classroom to curriculum.
