  • What is Study Six?
    Study Six is a high school international student exchange program that provides students with the opportunity to study abroad for a semester or a year. The program is designed to help students develop a deeper understanding of different cultures, improve language skills, and gain valuable life experiences.
  • How does Study Six work?
    Study Six works by partnering with high schools in popular areas of the US to facilitate international student experiences. Students from overseas are matched with host families , where they live and study for the duration of their experience. Our program provides on-campus support and guidance to students throughout their time abroad.
  • Who can participate in Study Six?
    Study Six is open to high school students between the ages of 14 and 18 who are interested in studying in the US and experiencing a different culture. Students must have a strong academic record and be proficient in English, as all classes are taught in English. For lower level English speakers, we do offer an ESL (English as a Second Language) program.
  • How long is the Study Six program?
    The Study Six program can last either one semester or one academic year, depending on the student's preference and the availability spots in schools. Students wishing to stay for longer than one year may be eligible to extend their stay.
  • How much does a program with Study Six cost?
    The cost of a Study Six program varies depending on several factors, including the length of the stay, school choice, and any additional costs such as ESL. Our program is committed to making exchanges as affordable as possible, without sacrificing on quality. Please contact us for more information on pricing.
  • What score do I need on TOEFL / IELTS / etc?
  • Do you offer medical insurance?
    Yes. If you do not already have your own policy, our students can elect to enroll in our Platinum group plan, specifically made for international students. Please see below for policy details.
  • How do I become a host family?
    All our host families must go through an application and screening process. This includes completing the application form on our website, undergoing a background check, house visit, and training.
  • What are the requirements to be a host family?
    Host families must be able to provide a safe and comfortable living environment for the student. This includes a private bedroom, access to a bathroom, and meals. Host families must also be willing to provide emotional support and cultural exchange opportunities for the student.
  • How long do students typically stay with host families?
    Students typically stay with host families for one semester or a full academic year. However, the length of stay can vary based on the student's program and individual circumstances.
  • Can we choose the student we host?
    As part of the application process for both students and hosts, we ask for specific preferences (e.g. gender, pets, siblings, nationality, etc). We then try to match students and hosts as closely as possible.
  • What support is available for host families and students?
    Study Six provides ongoing support for both host families and students throughout their stay. This includes staff on campus who will check in regularly, provide cultural guidance, and address any issues that may arise.
  • Do hosts have to drive the student to/from school? Is there a bus?
    Hosts are responsible for getting their student to/from school and extracurricular activities. There are limited bus routes. Hosts may choose to have their student take the school bus, if their house is on the route.
  • Do I have to provide meals?
    Breakfast and dinner should be provided by the host, with lunch also provided on weekends or holidays. School lunch should be paid for by the student.
  • Is there a stipend?
    Yes. We pay all our hosts $1,100 per month for the duration of the student's stay.
  • Can we take the student on vacation with us?
    Yes. We have a travel request form that students or hosts must complete, if they will be traveling outside of the local area or missing school. Keep in mind that if traveling outside of the US some students may be required to obtain visas, depending on the destination.
