Local families are invited to “Share Your America” with a high school exchange student from one of 70 European, South American, Asian, or African countries during the upcoming 2014-2015 school year. Students will arrive in the United States by August 2014.

Exchange students are welcome to visit the United States through Program of Academic Exchange, also known as PAX. The students are 15-to 18-years-old who have studied English for at least three years, and are motivated to learn more about the U.S. by attending high school and living with a host family.

Founded in 1990, PAX is a non-profit educational organization. Host families are responsible for the student’s meals and the added expense of housing another family member; everything else is covered by the student.
