For decades, the cross-cultural homestay has been considered the best educational vehicle for the development of real international understanding. There are profound opportunities for cultural immersion for students who take part by living with a well-vetted host family while attending a local high school abroad.
Living with a host family means that students will experience a full cultural and linguistic immersion.
Our French Host Families
Our High School Program
Studying in France will benefit your students on both an academic and personal level. They will learn a lot about themselves as they discover a new culture and improve their French. ARAM offers a wide range of academic programs throughout France.
Which program to choose?
It is possible to study in a public or a private school, to be in the countryside or in the city, to stay with a host family or in a boarding school and we are confident that we will find a placement which allows students to reach their potential. Our stays range from 1 to 10 months, but the time spent in France can be very flexible: it is one of the great advantages of our program.
- Standard in public school
- Private school (standard + private school fees)
- International Baccalaureate
- Combo program: French lessons in a language school in Montpellier before starting high school program. Our High School program is aimed at students who are committed to their studies and to improving their French.
Please note: our exchange students will study alongside French students and will be expected to work just as hard. However, they are unable to take the French Baccalaureate as this requires at least 2 years of studies.
Excursions & activities (included in our program)
We want our exchange students to get the most out of their time in France. That is why we organize excursions and activities throughout the year, which are included in our program price. We offer the opportunity to our students to participate in stays in Les Cévennes or cities such as Paris, Lyon, Marseille…, in day trips to historical cities such as Avignon or Nîmes, in outings to the beach or laser tags…
We want our students:
- To discover the depth of what France has to offer
- To make friends
- To have fun!
Students will remain in constant contact with a local coordinator for the duration of their stay in France. The coordinator will monitor the student’s progress and will be there to help in any situation. We will regulary send updates to the student’s famillies on their progress, as well as their school reports.
