Short Term Programs Life Changing Excursions and Trips
Welcome to FLAG's Short-Term Program
FLAG Short-Term Programs are for international exchange students, ages 13 to 19, who live with a host family or on a campus for an average of four weeks during the school year or summer. FLAG Short-Term Programs are ideal for students who desire to live in the US but are unable to come for a year long academic program. FLAG Short-Term Programs are designed and executed with the same standard of excellence as our traditional FLAGship and FLAG One programs. A highly customizable program, FLAG can make almost any international student’s dream of experiencing “the American way of life” a reality.
There are several ways you can visit the United States through our Short Term Programs. Our programs
are based on a format of customization where International Partners and their clients can build their own
program by adding features and activities to a basic homestay program by choosing them from a menu of
possibilities as outlined in our promotional materials. (*Promotional materials available upon request).
The basic package, including homestay and insurance only, ranges from 2-6 weeks in length. An activity
package can be added to the basic package. The activities vary by location but could include visits to
museums, kayaking, pool parties, sporting events and more! In addition to the local activities, one
excursion will be added to each trip that includes the activities package. These excursions could include
day trips to nearby cities or amusement parks.
Work With An International Partner or Direct with FLAG
If your local partner doesn’t have any groups they are sending to the US or you don’t live in an area that
we have an International Partner, we can work with you directly to build a program. These programs are
similar to the basic packages mentioned above. In addition to the basic package, students have the
option of adding school observations at a local US high school or career observations, based on your
interest. Please contact us directly to see how we can customize a trip for you!
