Why Were These Students Chosen?
We’ve been told that it is easier to be accepted into an Ivy League University than the FLEX Exchange Program. FLEX students are accepted after a series of interviews and achieving the highest scores on a range of academic, language, and character assessments.
What’s Being a Host Family Like?
There’s a reason why so many families remain close to their students many years after hosting. We sum it up simply – it’s Room and Board + Love and Support – just like any family. Our students crave families that live, learn, work, and celebrate together. These students are leaving their homes and wonderful families to learn about our country from people who embrace the opportunity to share your love and family values with a caring teenager from another country.
Host Family Supports
Tomorrow’s Teaching leads orientations for parents and students within their first days of arrival where we cover topics from expectations and strategies to creating a fun and loving family environment. Our team stays in close contact with our students to ensure they remain successful with their academics and extracurricular activities and with parents to track our students’ growth and any new developments.
Every month, we lead a Student Community Day where we meet as a group and volunteer or engage in a cultural event. Every other month we meet with our host families as a group to discuss strategies and ideas to ensure a most successful year for our students. We also celebrate several holidays together throughout the year.
