Our F-1 Exchange Program for Middle School Students is a private school exchange program for international students enrolling in 6th-8th grade. Students live with carefully pre-screened host families and attend private school as a full time student. The middle school exchange student program is a great opportunity for younger students to experience an American education before making the decision to attend high school in the U.S.
Quest facilitates the application process for students to schools and we provide a smooth transition for school acceptance and timely delivery of the F-1 visa application documents. The Quest International team is comprised of caring, committed and experienced individuals who support students and host families during the exchange. The Quest National Office is available to host families and students with a 24 hour emergency line.
Quest Local Coordinators supervise our students and provide monthly student progress reports to ensure students receive the most from their exchange program. Natural Parents will have peace of mind knowing their child has a Local Coordinator who is on hand to give support and guidance throughout the exchange experience. Our exchange program for middle school students is available for a semester or year with the opportunity to extend. Qualified students should be able to communicate with beginner English skills. English as a second language programs and individual tutoring are available for students who wish to accelerate their English.
Quest interviews host families in their home and we perform criminal background checks to ensure the safety of our students. Our program provides students with an Arrival Orientation together with the host family and Quest Local Coordinator. This orientation allows students an opportunity to ask questions and receive important information that will help them during their adjustment period.
We understand parents have many concerns and worries about younger students attending a middle school exchange program. At Quest we take pride in our host family screening process and careful supervision methods. Natural parents can rest assured the Quest staff will take special care of their child and ensure all of our middle school exchange students are keep safe.
