Now open in San Diego, one of the safest, largest and most exciting cities in America. The program is delivered through regular instructor-student interaction and supported by a state-of-the-art computer lab. The faculty is composed of American professional educators who have spent a considerable amount of time teaching and researching the best educational materials and methods.
Our international academy offers a strong support system facilitating each newcomer’s cultural, educational, and personal experience. Our staff strives for excellence not only for themselves, but also for the students.
In addition to academic programs, there is a set of organized activities for enjoyment and cultural appreciation. From San Diego’s historical downtown, art galleries, and sport events to field trips to Los Angeles, Joshua Tree National Park, the Palomar Mountain observatory, and all the best that Southern California offers, these exciting destinations will help you practice your new language skills.
Our San Diego campus is set in the heart of Mission Valley, just minutes away from downtown San Diego. San Diego is a relaxed city with a cosmopolitan flair. “Approximately 1.2 million people live in San Diego, making it the 7th largest city in the United States. Although the city’s population keeps increasing, San Diego has not lost its small town ambiance, and it retains a strong connection with its Hispanic heritage and culture”.
* Housing Assistance and Counseling: HIA Staff will be available to assist with any housing questions or concerns you may have. We want to help you understand new situations, immerse yourself in your new environment and make new friends. Our counselors are culturally diverse, knowledgeable and have experience with the international students' needs away from home.
* Homestay with an American Family: A homestay is one of the best ways to experience American daily life, learn about American culture, and practice your English skills. Through our affiliated homestay agencies, we are able to match you with the most suitable family. Our homestay agencies have many years of experience and have a good understanding of the international student’s needs.
Students may indicate their family and location preferences prior to their family placement. All families are carefully selected and continuously screened. We listen carefully to our students’ comments as to their family and homestay arrangements. In case you are not happy with your homestay arrangement, we will try to find a solution for you or place you with another family, if desired.
You will have a private room in a caring family environment. The family will provide you with two meals per day (breakfast and dinner). As an additional option, students may choose a homestay without meals. Linens and towels will be provided. Your host family will meet you at the airport when you arrive.
