Welcome to Xplore USA!
Xplore USA, based in Asheville, North Carolina, is an educational student travel organization. We specialize in educational programs for international students coming to the United States.
A Small Step. A Big Journey.
Xplore USA offers a little piece of “language immersion heaven”. International students experience the United States up close and personal whether they choose to visit us for only a couple of weeks in one of our short-term programs or decide to spend a longer time in America for a study abroad experience and attend a public or private high school in selected parts of the country.
This website is dedicated to showcase our short-term programs only.
Xplore USA' homestay and residential short-term programs are an excellent first step for international teens who want to further their understanding of American culture and the English language.
All of our trips emphasize local involvement and community enrichment. It is our goal that the student participants take advantage of the opportunity to build relationships, improve their English skills, and gain valuable insight into American culture, customs and habits while having a great time doing it.
Our goal for families and community members is that they get to know our students and that gain a better understanding of another country and its culture. We want them to enjoy the opportunities to participate in our intercultural activities, and, build lasting friendships with students, staff, and other families.

one of a kind.
