Latin America

Latin American Students Study at High Schools in the United States

There is a limit to the amount of specialty courses available to students in Latin America. Many decide to leave their country to pursue an education in the United States and enroll in specialty courses catering to their personalized interests and talents. Some include topics such as fashion design, dance, aviation, aeronautics, squash, robotics, cartooning, drawing, orchestra and more!

Latin Americans welcome the opportunity to travel and study abroad to learn more about American cultures and customs. Typically, students will stay in the USA for one semester, while others seek honors courses to improve their skills and potentially pursue a reputable university in the United States.
