Would you like to gain valuable experience during your secondary studies to prepare you for higher education in the USA? Secondary or boarding school is called “high school” in the U.S. and spans from sixth through twelfth grade. However, sixth through eighth grade are typically considered “middle school,” followed by high school in grades nine through twelve. 

International students arrive for their secondary school education in the U.S., most commonly in the final years of their secondary education. Spending time in the U.S. before university allows you to establish yourself in a new country, better understand U.S. culture, develop your English language skills, and ultimately make yourself a better candidate for college admissions. 

Taking a few additional months to study in the USA can help acclimate you to American education and can go a long way toward preparing you for your time in university.
