STS High School 14–18 years of age

What is the difference between High School Classic and Select?

High School Classic is the traditional high school exchange program. It’s the perfect program for you if you want a genuine high school experience abroad and are ready to embrace all the surprises and experiences that may bring. Based on your profile, you will be paired with a host family and a school in your chosen country. You will be placed in a class that best suits your age, language skills and academic level.

If you choose the High School Select program, your stay abroad is completely in your own hands and in many cases, you can decide both the city and the exact school you want to attend. For example, if you want to take special lessons in art, media, extra languages, sports, or play a musical instrument, you can find what you're looking for in our wide range of Select schools.

But whatever you choose, both options will give you the best year of your life.
