It is better to plan the admission of a foreign student to an American university of the first echelon from a high school in this country. The language, education system, American way of life are very different from other ones, and it takes time and considerable effort to adapt.
American schools usually accept foreign students from the age of 12. The main stages of study in a US school after 12 years are middle school (12-14 years old) and high school (15-18 years old).
In secondary school, the foundations of academic education are laid, in the senior one, preparations for entering higher educational institutions are already beginning. Public schools in the United States are tightly controlled by local and federal supervisory authorities, private schools are given more freedom in the choice of curriculum and teaching methods.
To prepare for studying in the United States, it is better to choose a private school. Private schools in the United States have more than half a century of experience teaching foreign students along with American ones.
Teachers here are prepared for interethnic communication, adapt school curriculum, and develop a system of assistance to foreign students. It is easier for a private school to cope with this task: the teacher works with a small group of students, which allows for an individual approach, to develop the strengths of each student.
Private boarding schools will take on the solution of problems related to accommodation, nutrition, physical and aesthetic development of the student. The American boarding school is more like a town with its own stadiums, sports grounds, clubs, theaters.
All conditions for successful study and recreation are created in comfortable residences, events are held here every week. There is an online portal for parents, teachers, educators and administration are constantly in touch with them. The boarding school is responsible for the safety of the student 24 hours a day.
