J1 Exchange

The student exchange experience is an unforgettable one. Your year will be filled with new discoveries about yourself and others while you live with an American host family, attend high school and improve your English skills.

The J-1 program is an affordable 1 year, public school program offered to international students between the ages of 15 and 18. AAIG works with J-1 program partners in many countries who provide students with preparation, English testing and visa assistance. Trained AAIG coordinators place students with pre-screened and carefully selected host families who have a genuine desire to share their American culture. AAIG places students in 45 states and offers layers of support via our local coordinators and student counselors who are on hand to help throughout the program.
