​Private High School USA

MyEducation is also able to offer you the opportunity to attend a Private High School or boarding school in the United States. An advantage of this program is that your school enrolment is secured in advance for your placement in the United States. As places are secured by payment of fees, schools are always able to accept students - even exchange students.

Another advantage is that the classes and schools are often smaller. With fewer students in classes there is more time for each student, and it's easier to secure a place in your favourite activities and subjects. If you choose Private High School your school enrolment is usually confirmed even before we find your host family.

On the regular high school program we must first find you a family, then the family must be approved, and when the approval is in place, we can apply for admission to the local school, who may decline the enrolment, so then the process starts over again in a different area or another state. Many believe that finding host families is the biggest challenge - but it is the schools that present the biggest challenge in the United States. On the Private High School program these difficulties do not occur.

With this program you can choose any school in the program that you want to enrol in. These schools are expensive, and the price varies from school to school. With Private High School the host family is paid as this is the only way it can be ensured that there is a host family in the area of your chosen school.

Private High School schools are often located in attractive areas, typically have fewer students and offer more professional opportunities and leisure activities.

Some of our private schools often have a particular religious orientation, so you will experience morning song and maybe bible study (religious education). But do not let yourself be intimidated by this fact.  All schools listed are not strongly religious and accept all nationalities and backgrounds openly.

Read what Christine, a former Private High School students wrote about her stay:

"My school was like any other school but as it was a Christian school, there was a focus on teaching with a biblical view of things. Every lesson began with the teachers asking  whether we have any 'prayer requests', after which the teacher will start the lesson. No prayer request is too 'small' or unnecessary.

What's really cool about going to a private / Christian school is that you really form a strong bond with your teachers during your education in the United States.

In addition, private schools / Christian schools are generally not as large, making it possible for you to be known by all students - creating a small community. My school has just 500 students, which means that you get to know everybody, and they can get to know you.

When I was told that I was going to a Christian school, I was a little sceptical, but my view on it has completely changed! I'm SO well known in my school, and think I'd rather be here than at a public school. "
