BFF Students in the USA

BFF Students in the USA

Culture

Experience the United States culture in real life.  You will learn that real life in the U.S. is not always like the movies! Sometimes it is just as simple as playing board games or going for a bike ride in the neighborhood. Taste foods that are uniquely American, meet students at your high school, and immerse yourself in extracurricular activities.

Experience regional and local cultures here depending on your placement location. Maybe you will drink sweet tea and watch a lot of college basketball in North Carolina, or maybe you will live in Big Sky Country, Montana!

Education

Experience the United States educational culture by studying in one of our accredited high schools. By experiencing life as a students, you will get to meet other teenagers, experience Friday night lights, join in on extracurricular activities, learn about American history, and understand how we educate our youth.

It will likely be different than the education system in your home country and comparing the two systems can be a great learning opportunity. Remember it’s not the wrong or right way, it’s just different. Isn’t that why you want to come, after all?

Fun

That’s right! We want you to have fun while you are here. Explore your host community with your host family and friends. We hope you see one of our incredible beaches or, our beautiful mountains, or explore your state fair or, local festival, even-go to an amusement park, or kayak down a river! The U.S. is a country with many diverse communities offering a variety of fun things to do. Make sure you are checking out your host community and the fun they have to offer!

In addition to exploring the U.S. with your host family and friends, you can sign up for one of our BFF students trips!

Stories of BFF Students in the USA

We got the son we never knew we wanted. Our family was not looking to host a students, but BFF reached out to our daughter’s rowing club and changed our lives forever. We
were nervous to have someone else in our little family, but it has been an amazing experience on various levels. Our only child (16-year-old daughter) got a brother, and we got a son. It has truly warmed my heart to watch their relationship develop.

Tami, Dick, and Skyler

Back in August, we grew our family by one. A beautiful young woman from Italy, named Anna joined our family. She has blessed us with many smiles, memories, and delicious food! I don’t think we could have picked a perfect fit for our family. We have shared some of our favorite destinations with her and she has been open to all. Little things like checking the mail and washing the car windows at a gas station have brought so much joy and excitement to her. It is funny to see the little things that are so different in other countries.
