Model School Program


The Council on Standards for International Educational Travel (CSIET), in partnership with the secondary-school community, has developed the Model School Policy to assist American schools in the process of administering successful international student exchange programs. CSIET, a national non-profit foundation, is dedicated to promoting quality international youth exchanges that enrich local high school communities. The CSIET Model School Program Policy was developed with valuable input from individual high school administrators, exchange program managers, and national advocates for youth exchange. These suggested guiding principles provide a foundation for local school policies and encourage every U.S. school to engage in international youth exchange programs.


The Model School Policy offers guidelines on : •Enrollment Number of International Exchange Students •Timing of Placement Process •Selecting Student Exchange Organizations •School Expectations of a Student Exchange Program •School Expectations for Students on a J-1 Visa Sponsorships •School Responsibilities


The Model School Policy on International Student Exchange Program has been endorsed by: the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), and the American Association of School Administrators (AASA).Â
