About the Program

CHI is dedicated to carefully matching international exchange students with wonderful American host families and U.S. high schools. Every year high school-aged youth from over 30 countries around the world participate in CHI’s high school foreign exchange program – the Academic Year Program (AYP).

As a U.S. Department of State designated J-1 visa program sponsor, CHI adheres to the highest level of program compliance. Host families can feel confident that they are participating in a quality educational and cultural foreign exchange program.

If your family is interested in opening your door to the world by hosting an international exchange student, please complete our inquiry form or visit our regions page and email one of our Academic Program Administrators directly!
