Private School Advantage (PSA)
PSA is a program of the AIFS Foundation whose mission is to promote worldwide understanding through cultural exchange.
PSA provides support services to American High School Sponsors and International Students participating on F-1 programs across the U.S.
Studying in the U.S. is a valuable experience for both international students and the high schools they attend. However, transitioning to an American high school can be daunting for students and faculty.
Partnering with PSA:
- helps students maximize their academic success
- expedites their adjustment at school
- provides your counselors and teachers with an additional outlet for support
