Educatius Group’s USA F-1 Inbound High School Program Listed by CSIET for 5th year in a Row
Traveling across the world to study high school in America can be one of the most life-changing decisions that a student can make. The #1 concern of young international students and their parents is to have the assurance of experienced support and service during their stay far away from home.
Therefore, we are very proud to announce that Educatius Group has been listed by CSIET (Council on Standards for International Educational Travel) for the 5th year in a row for its USA F-1 Inbound Day High School Program., for 2019-2020.
CSIET is a not-for-profit organization committed to quality international educational travel and exchange for youth at the high school level in the USA. The mission of CSIET is to evaluate and certify long-term international student exchange programs at the secondary (high school) level, and to help ensure safety and value for international students, secondary schools, host families and natural parents. CSIET accredits only programs that demonstrate:
- Commitment to CSIET’s Standards of Excellence;
- Engagement in the development and sharing of Community Preferred Practices; and
- Advancement of the educational value of international student exchange.
In 2018 Educatius Group hosted the largest number of F-1 international students in American high schools among any F-1 organization listed by CSIET.
“This 5th consecutive year of the CSIET listing is very important us, and just one of our many commitments to the quality of our high school program for international students,” confirms Paul McLaughlin, President Educatius USA and Canada. “All of Educatius Group’s F-1 high school operations in North America, including boarding schools and our Canada high school programs, were recently certified by ISO 9001 - a 2-year process that results in a quality mark unique among high school programs. In addition, our published Service Promise lets students and their parents understand specifically how our staff and processes support them along each step of their journey – including choosing a school, submitting an application, receiving I-20 documentation, orientation, monthly reports from a local coordinator when in the USA and support if the student encounters challenges.”
Since 2003, Educatius Group has grown to partner with an impressive portfolio of 230 public, private and boarding high schools in the USA that accept international students on an F-1 visa. A main office in Boston, regional offices in Toronto, Shanghai, Chongqing, Sweden, Latin America, Turkey, Vietnam and Korea, local coordinators in each USA community and 24/7 toll-free help number ensure ongoing support for international students living and studying in the USA. As the world's largest and most diverse high school experts, Educatius Group placed and managed 6,000 students from 60+ countries to 17 different countries in 2018.
