STS High School 14–18 years of age

Student stories

Going on a high school exchange is an equally exciting and terrifying thought. It is an experience that will make you more independent, increase your confidence, and let you learn a lot, especially about yourself. You will see new places, make friendships for life, and expand your horizons on things both big and small. Safe to say, it’s an invaluable experience you’ll carry with you for the rest of your life. Call it personal growth, or self-discovery. We simply say that with us, you will – discover you.
