Bringing Students to the United States
We have a robust summer exchange program for European students interested in studying the language and culture in the United States. Middle school and high school students come for one month every summer and stay with local host families, attend classes several times per week, and participate in activities and excursions with host families and through our program.
Due to COVID-19, our school semester exchange program was suspended. Until we are able to re-start, we are only providing our summer exchange student program.
A Perfect Match for A Perfect Summer
Each student is personally screened to ensure that we can properly place the student with the perfect family. We take painstaking care for the wellbeing of each participant, and have a dedicated coordinator who is responsible for solving any issue that may arise during a students’ stay. Each student is provided with a 24-hour emergency telephone number direct to our office.
US Summer program includes:
• Airfare to Florida
• Full room and board
• Full American and 24-hour English language immersion
• Daily activities and excursions, as well as a two-day trip to Orlando with hotel, breakfast, and dinner included. Theme park tickets and other costs are not included.
All participants must be covered by a medical insurance policy and cover any personal expenses.
LEGACY HOST FAMILIES
Every year, Spanish Legacy welcomes almost 40 European students to our Sarasota community. These students come to immerse themselves in the US culture and practice speaking English and live and are hosted by gracious local families. Each of the students and our prospective families are personally screened so they can be well matched with one another. We have more applicants than host families, so we are always looking for new homes to add as a part of our Legacy Host Family program.
Exchange Students – Keeping it Simple
As a Legacy Family, you’ll host one of our International Exchange Students in your home for a month during summer. You’ll provide room and board for a student aged 10-16 and give them a first-hand glimpse into the American culture by sharing the things you love to eat, activities you do, and what you read and/or watch. It doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive, as simple things like trips to Target and the beach are ‘super-cool,’ They want to soak it all in!
Our Legacy Families get the immeasurable benefit of learning from and teaching their own children about the European culture, customs, foods, and day-to-day life, and often become life-long friends!
Families need not have a corresponding child of the same age or even children at all, you don’t need to provide financial support or insurance to their hosted students. Students just want to ‘live as Americans’ and practice their English.
This program is designed for middle and high school students and is committed to fostering curiosity and cultural discovery by bringing people and families together! For more than 15 years, we have taken great pride and care in providing the highest standard of service and accommodations for our students and families.
