Studying in another country is probably one of the most positive experiences for any student. It’s an opportunity to see the world and experience new cultures, customs, activities, and ideas.
Yorktown Education has a respected International Student Program that gives students from other countries an opportunity to experience the American culture first-hand. Students live with a host family who welcomes them into their home as ‘one of the family’, providing all the essentials, as well as sharing their lifestyle and activities.
In addition to the excellent academic environment at Yorktown, international students benefit from honing their language skills and learning new communication variances. While education is always at the core of this experience, there are scores of new adventures to undertake, too. Traveling in the state of Texas offers countless new sights and adventures, with world-class museums, theaters, concert halls, entertainment venues, and an amazing array of nature’s finest scenery.
Studying in another country provides students with new opportunities for discovery that they might never have known about had they stayed home. There may be hidden talents that students discover about a new activity they never thought to try back home. Such things as water sports, golf, snow skiing, hiking, or any number of other things are waiting to be discovered.
Aside from the excellent learning experience, international students gain one of the greatest possible benefits – making new and lifelong friends from different backgrounds. These are people to stay in touch with and, possibly, engage with in career and networking opportunities after college.
International students build self-confidence being on their own in another country away from home. It helps develop independence and encourages them to be explorers. While being away from home may test or challenge students, they learn to adapt to new situations and become better problem solvers. International students often rise to become better leaders in their careers.
Yorktown Education is a culture built on collaboration and community. Our students progress according to their individual accomplishments. We encourage and teach students to discover and Do What They Love.
International students with strong English proficiency skills who want to be part of the lifestyle of their host family are encouraged to apply. Other living arrangements can be discussed.
