CSIET (Council on Standards for International Educational Travel) has just published their 2017-2018 stats showing all F-1 students who studied on a CSIET listed high school + host family program in the USA.  And we are very excited to share that Educatius Group received the largest number of international high school students on CSIET F-1 high school programs in the last year!

“It’s more than just the number of students we place,” according to Educatius Group USA President Paul McLaughlin. “We have always committed to following a high standard of service for our young students who are far away from home adjusting to a new language, culture and academic environment. In addition to our CSIET listing, we publish a Service Promise, that helps every international student and their family understand how our processes work and know how we handle unexpected situations. We are so proud of our staff, American host families and our network of agent and school partners who contributed to making us the leader in F-1 high school programs in the USA.”

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.

Educatius Group works with a list of 230 public and private high schools in the USA that accept international students on an F-1 visa.  A main office in Boston, regional offices in Shanghai, Europe, 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 16 different countries in 2017-18.
