Through the Secondary Education program, IPERC works directly with our day school and boarding school partners to increase international student enrollment. We have provided services for more than 1000 international students attending North American high schools and living with host families or in school dormitories. IPERC works with schools and agencies in China, Vietnam, South Korea, Taiwan, India, Pakistan, Nigeria, and many other countries to recruit international students for our over 200 partner high schools.
Through our Secondary Education program, IPERC partners with over 200 elite day schools across the US and Canada. From the Atlantic coast in the east to the Pacific coast in the west, IPERC provides comprehensive support throughout the application, enrollment, and homestay matching process. For over a decade, IPERC has built an extensive homestay network of over 500 host families to ensure that we match every student with their ideal host family. Our host family coordinators and student coordinators are located near every IPERC partner school to provide everyday support to students during their stay in North America.
IPERC works directly with dozens of boarding schools across North America to place students into their perfect school. We provide numerous services before and after students arrive at our partner boarding schools. Pre-arrival, IPERC assists with school finding and matching, practice interviews, application and enrollment guidance, student re-enrollment applications, visa application support, tuition payments, cultural orientations, summer homework, immunization assistance, course schedule guidance seminars, and obtaining health records. Post-arrival, IPERC's staff will visit students every quarter, hold twice-yearly parent conferences, issue bilingual parent conference reports, provide student academic supervision, oversee course selection guidance and planning, connect students with psychological counseling, act as an emergency contact person for students, and provide holiday residential assistance.
IPERC finds qualified host families who provide a safe and nurturing home environment for international high school students attending school in North America. IPERC host families gain a deeper understanding of how culture varies across the world and develop the kind of lifelong friendships that make our cultural exchange program valuable. Each host family will be assigned a local coordinator and a student coordinator who will work together to ensure effective communication and a safe and fun experience for everyone involved.
