CETUSA Group Home Stay
Updated: 2009-11-28 11:18:30
I would like to introduce my company and myself to you. My name is Jill LaChance and I am the Director of Groups for CETUSA, Council for Educational Travel, USA. Our company provides students of all ages the opportunity to come to America on a home stay program.
CETUSA was established in 1995. CETUSA has grown from a small office in Switzerland to a worldwide organization. We have offices and representatives in Albania, Bulgaria, Russia, Switzerland, Canada, England, Germany, Cypress, Hungary, and Moldavia and throughout the United States. Most of our foreign students prefer coming to the United States, California in particular, for the home stay program.
We can design a program specifically for your school. Below is a brief description of our "normal" program that may give you an idea of what we offer.
CETUSA Group Home Stay
We can accommodate your students anytime during the year. The most popular times are spring and summer months but you certainly are not limited to those times. The programs are usually conducted like this:
2 to 4 weeks of home stay with an American family
airport transfers to their host family homes and back to the airport of arrival
12 hours of English per week
1 full day trip to an exciting location (Disneyland, Universal Studios, Hollywood) per week.
2 half-day excursions (shopping, museums, city tours, beaches, parks, cultural events) per week
A welcome party when they arrive and a farewell party before they depart.
All students will stay with a prescreened American family. They will have close contact with their coordinator who will make certain each student is doing well throughout the entire home stay.
In addition to the short-term home stay we also have the more traditional academic high school and college programs. Your students will stay with a prescreened host family and have close contact with their counselor. This program can be for one semester or for the entire school year. Each student will be assisted in acquiring a visa. The counselor will assist each student in the enrollment process at the local high school or college.
We look forward to hearing from you and designing a program that will make wonderful life long memories for your students.
