For some students, a single year in the US is not enough. There are some students who wish to attend a private high school in the U.S., typically for multiple years, with the goal of graduating and receiving a diploma. Students who come looking for a high caliber, academically challenging educational environment will be pleased to discover the great options we have for private secondary education.

Students who choose this option will arrive on an F-1 visa which is sponsored by a school that partners with United Studies. There is a cost of tuition associated with the Private School Option which can vary greatly depending upon the school. Schools themselves also vary greatly in terms of faith, some are religious while others are not; student body size; location; uniform expectations; and other factors.

Similar to the students in the Academic Year Program, private school students will live with a fully vetted host family and will have the support of a local United Studies area representative.
