SISTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
Our Sister School Program has successfully connected over 100 secondary schools overseas and with 100 schools in the United States, UK, and Canada. In addition, over 7,000 international students and 500 teachers have visited the U.S. through our Short-Term Education Exchange Program, which has also provided over 1,000 American students and teachers the opportunity to participate in cultural and educational exchanges throughout the world. This cooperation has been beneficial for all involved and has added cultural enrichment to all participants.
