High School International Students in Central Valley

California’s Central Valley is home to Fresno, Modesto, Turlock, Merced, Stockton, Visalia and other cities that break the urban metropolis mold. Located between LA and the Bay Area with mountains and coastline on either side, the Valley is a springboard to exploring the rest of the state, from sandy beaches to redwood forests.

Why Study Abroad in The Central Valley?

The Central Valley is the perfect place for students looking to get away from the big cities and experience a taste of small-town America. You’ll be able to sample locally-grown produce and some of the best Mexican food in California. Cultural diversity and historical downtown districts make this region vibrant and intriguing, despite its semi-rural setting. Within a 100-mile radius, international students can surf in Monterey, hike through Yosemite National Park, or go skiing in the Sierra Nevadas.

Student Testimonials

High School Student

This is my first time coming to America. I feel very wonderful. The scenery is beautiful and the sky is clear. I live close to Pismo Beach. My homestay family is friendly. They will take me to play every week. The school has many activities and a robotics class. It has improved my vision of the world. After class, I always participate in conversations with students. This is my great life.
