High School Abroad
Not many American teens consider spending a semester or year studying abroad, yet thousands of international students take the plunge every year – so why not you?
We specialize in student travel – in fact we have over 15 years experience in sending high school students all over the world to study abroad, so why not take a look at the opportunities we have for you to try a new education and widen your cultural experience.
What is MyChoice?
‘MyChoice’ is exactly what defines our high school placement program. Our goal is to allow students to accomplish their educational and extra-curricular goals whilst studying abroad, so we developed a high school program that not only allows students to choose where they want to study, but also what they want to study by requesting specific classes or activities to participate in.
We offer high school programs in Germany, Ireland or England, where American students can carry on their high school studies while living away from home and gaining a wealth of knowledge and experience meeting new friends and trying new things.
Studying Abroad is Life Changing...
I was really nervous to study abroad, but it was such a great experience! I learned more than I expected to, in and outside of the classroom.
In England, it is a legal requirement that all students on a high school placement must have a guardian residing in England. Xplore (Klub Group Ltd) occupies this function for all students embarking on a MyChoice placement. As legal guardian, Xplore acts on behalf of a student’s biological parent(s) or legal carer(s) and has parental powers in medical situations, with school authorities, or the police.
Xplore offers opportunities for teens to interact with the world in select programs for as little as a few weeks in camps or family immersion to custom programs in multiple countries. The experiences gained from these opportunities will be beneficial when applying to colleges and for future jobs. Colleges and employers look favorably on experience gained while studying abroad as it shows commitment and perseverance. Studying abroad increases analytical and problem solving skills and enhances interest in global issues. In many cases, working through the unique challenges a student faces while studying abroad will lead to an increased self-esteem, maturity level and social skills.
