Global School Access provides a selection of schools in the United States and other countries that offer students the opportunity to grow personally, academically, and socially, and to help them prepare for college. GSA gets to know the students through face-to-face or video meetings, so the appropriate schools can be considered by the student’s family, and provides a great deal of support during the application and enrollment process. GSA stays in contact with students to ensure they are happy and successful, and monitors grades, arranging for additional academic support if necessary. Reports on the student’s progress are provided to the student’s family throughout the school year.
If not a boarding school, GSA identifies host families that would be the right fit for the student. Care is taken to ensure a safe, welcoming, and supportive environment, and the opportunity to experience life in the United States while being part of an American family.
GSA helps the students it works with maximize their potential, and pursue their interests and passions. The cross-cultural experience provides growth and understanding, and is a necessity in today’s global economy.
GSA provides an orientation prior to student arrival to help prepare for the transition to a new country, culture, and education system, arranges for medical insurance and airport pickups/drop-offs, can assist with college counseling and advising, and is continuously available for support. GSA helps students obtain cell phones, open bank accounts, and with any other support they might need. Students learn a great deal about American culture and the U.S. education system, and GSA asks its students to share their own culture and traditions in order to educate their classmates, host family, and community.
