Family Program

Overview

The Family Program is offered only in Orlando, FL. This program is specifically designed for families who want to live in the United States for 1 or 2 academic semesters (4 or 8 months). This is an excellent opportunity for the whole family to have an international experience living and studying abroad, improving their English skills, traveling, and learning more about the American culture. With this program, one of the parents must enroll in an English course while their children attend a regular American school. The schools are determined based on the family’s address, which will be confirmed along the process.

Please fill out the form and we will contact you soon!
