CHI’s Academic Year Program (AYP) offers international teenagers, ages 15 to 18 1/2, the opportunity to spend either a 10-month academic year or a 5-month academic semester as an exchange student at a U.S. high school and experience living with a volunteer host family. CHI carefully screens for highly motivated exchange student candidates who demonstrate solid English ability, above average academic skills, maturity and of course, a strong desire to live and learn about life in the U.S.
