Unique Opportunity for Flex Major School Students

Would you like to receive more information about how your school can also offer Flex Major School international programs and thus open a new horizon for your students?

THE COLLEGE PREP PROGRAM

Flex High School offers its students the opportunity to attend the College Prep Vocational Exchange Program.

For 2 weeks, our students take classes with teachers from different partner universities and colleges, and stay in the student residence of the campus itself. This enables the student to have a better understanding of the American student life while they connect with students from all over the world who study at the university.

The program takes place in different locations in the United States, such as San Francisco and Orlando. Additionally, it provides diverse activities of cultural tours, such as visits to previous editions of the San Francisco Exploratorium and the Walt Disney Family Museum. In addition to other significantly enriching activities, we also include leisure activities typical of the American culture, such as watching American football or baseball games, guided tours in companies that have world references, such as NASA and Google.

Contact with international students adds multicultural values allowing infinite exchanges of experiences. The intent of the program is for the student to understand and experience cutting-edge educational techniques available to them in the world.

Testimonials

There are no words to express how enriching the journey was! Having had the opportunity to learn how an American university works and being able to be in that environment was simply incredible. This experience enabled me to face the world in a different way, with more maturity and discernment. I also learned how to chart the possible ways to achieve my professional goals. I am sure that I will carry the knowledge acquired during the program for a lifetime!

The trip was fantastic! The learning was huge as was the fun. Although we do not have full command of the English language, all errors and mistakes were fundamental to our learning. We discovered new expressions, how to convert other units of measures, new people and deepen our English. My discoveries have been impressive, including my level of English, and now I feel motivated to do my best every day!
