Public Schools

Students at American public schools will take a variety of courses including language, history, literature, mathematics, and science. Class offerings and requirements vary from school to school and different states have different educational requirements for high school students. Based on their educational level, international students are placed in courses that fit their ability and achievement level. School sizes and classes vary from small to large, each offering a unique learning opportunity to students. Our students are expected to maintain a full class schedule and meet with counselors in their school to select classes. Teachers are available for extra support and are happy to help students who need it.

Extracurricular activities are also a dynamic part of the learning process and students are encouraged to participate. Outside of class, you can choose from a wide variety of sports, recreation and club activities. Options range from sports teams to cheerleading, bands, choral groups, school newspapers, yearbooks and community service organizations. Many special interest clubs allow you to expand on your studies in areas such as drama, science, debate and music.  Some schools also offer international or global clubs where students can share their culture with other international students as well as local students.

Private & Parochial Schools

Private and Parochial schools are located throughout the USA and come in many varieties. Most are co-ed, but some are all-male or all-female. Private schools may be non-religious or hold a religious affiliation.  Religiously affiliated schools typically do not require students belong to their faith but there may be religion classes as part of the curriculum.  LPI Learning Admissions Advisor will help you determine which private schools are the best fit for you– for academics, location, sports, arts, and other programs.

Each private school has its own admissions requirements and will look at each student’s academic grades, English level and motivation among other factors. Schools often require an interview with each applicant before considering their admission (via Skype). International students must complete the schools application for admission, in addition to the LPI application process, and once admitted, maintain a passing grade point average (GPA). ESL classes may be available in some schools, should students require additional language support; however this is not guaranteed.  Your Admissions Advisor will offer support and guidance throughout the process.

Boarding Schools

Boarding Schools are private schools, either religious or non-religious, where students to live on campus in a residential setting. Schools provide residential support and supervision, most frequently from teachers and staff who live on campus.  Students at boarding schools among their classmates and most frequently have roommates.

Meals are included as part of overall program costs as are some activities and outings throughout the school year.
