ABOUT THE HIGH SCHOOL

Some countries offer the possibility to choose the location and school of study. What’s the best option for you? Check the options available in different countries.

When choosing where to study, you have a choice between public and private schools. Public schools are generally more relaxed and offer a unique opportunity to mingle with local students and immerse yourself in the culture of your chosen country. It is a good option for those who want to have a better contact with the local culture. On the other hand, private schools stand out for their academic quality and preparation for admission to the best universities. They also offer a variety of subjects, sports and social activities. In addition, private schools also generally have more resources and infrastructure, but are generally more expensive.

The accommodation option can vary between the home of a host family or at a Boarding School, where accommodation and education are provided within the school itself. The choice of accommodation type will depend on the chosen program.

The duration of your study program may vary according to the chosen country, allowing you to start studying in one academic semester. In some countries, it is possible to extend the program until the completion of high school.

HIGH SCHOOL REQUIREMENTS

Be between 14 and 18 years old

Having an intermediate level of knowledge in the language in which the High School will be taught is important.

Being in High School

Do a personal interview and a language test.

THE 9 STAGES OF THE HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM

The student and family will have an interview with our team to set expectations, the next step is to complete your registration. During this process, you will choose your destination and the duration of your study program.

After completing the application, you will receive a dossier to fill out. This dossier is your presentation to host schools and host families, it is a kind of resume, in it you should describe your skills, interests and goals. It will be sent to Experimento’s partner organization abroad, and will help the school and families choose the best candidates for their programs.

After evaluating the dossier, the organization abroad will forward a letter of acceptance into the program.

Before boarding, you will have the opportunity to participate in meetings with other exchange students and orientation meetings about the High School Program. These meetings will be informal and serve as an opportunity for you to meet other students who will also be embarking on this journey and better prepare for the program.

Tess will take care of providing the necessary documents to obtain the visa, but it will be your responsibility to apply for the visa at the consulate of the country you are traveling to. Therefore, it is important that you are aware of the requirements and procedures for obtaining a visa, and that you comply with them correctly and on time to guarantee your trip.

Once you receive your dossier, Tess begins the process of identifying the school and family that will host it.

Tess will be on hand to assist you with booking and issuing your airline ticket and will provide all the support you need to ensure your journey is smooth and trouble-free from the moment you board.

Make the most of your program, this is the perfect opportunity to grow as a human being, develop your independence and autonomy, fundamental for your future. Make new friends, meet people from different cultures and participate in all proposed activities. Keep your mind open to new experiences and be flexible to change. Remember, there is no right or wrong, there are cultural differences and it is important to be willing to learn from them.

The High School program will pass by very quickly and before you know it, it will be time to return to Brazil. Don’t forget to provide all the necessary documentation for your grades to be recognized on your return. Now it’s time to share all your experiences with your family and friends and let your marks and learnings last forever.

Much more than an advisory, a look at the United States for those who wanted to study here. Excellent service and attention to every question. TESS goes far beyond its services, it is a friend we can trust. I did my process with them and when I got to school, nothing was missing. Just do the protocol. Highly recommend.

I need to express here my gratitude to this agency! My case was already too high to be resolved, I got in touch and spoke with one of the people who work there, who by the way is still there today.

I am so glad to have met Tess and Ron! I have lived in America for two years. When I first met them, they were not my guardians, but they were my best friend’s host family. Before I switched to their agency (TESSUSA) I was under a lot of stress from my previous guardian. Ron and Tess saved me!

I am an international student from Korea, studying abroad by myself since my sophomore year in high school, and I have a family here in the United States. We might not be related by blood, but we have an even stronger bond: love and caring. Cheesy as it sounds, those two words are the first to come into my mind when I think of Tess and Ron, the CEO and COO of T.E.S.S. Inc.

Thanks to TESS USA for all the help and dedication, especially Kenya who was super attentive and spared no effort in helping me find a school in record time, as my transfer deadline was coming to an end and, if it weren't for Kenya's help , I would have lost everything I had conquered… Thank you very much to you!!"

Whom It May Concern My name is Adonis Bachara from Syria. I am eighteen, and I finished high school in 2012. I always dreamed about studying in the United States of America. Oneday, my aunt Elizabeth called me at my house and said that she has talked to a friend of her that could help me get accepted in Worcester State University. I was thrilled and excited about it, and told her to start working on this matter right away.

I met Tess Reisler through a friend of mine and she was extremely helpful from the very first conversation; I knew that I was dealing with good people and with a serious and responsible company. They helped me to find a prep school that would consider me that would allow me to play soccer and to study.

I have been to the USA two times. One was in winter and the other one was in summer. Every time it was a great experience. I lived in Tess and Ron’s family each time, and it was a really enjoyable moment. Before my trip, I have chosen to go to the USA to improve my English but my trip was much more. I learnt so much about American life, history and culture.

Vincent Meng

I still remember the sweet house, tasty foods, cute animals and hospitable family members… From Tess’s house I learned what American family is like. At the beginning, I was homesick, but with the care of Tess’s family, I actually got used to the new environment very soon.

My brother decided to take a trip to the United States and soon realized the need to study English to communicate better. He found TESS to be his agent and since then it has only reaped good results. Always well oriented, today he has a student visa and is already enrolled in a school. He starts studying next week and according to his reports, I will always recommend TESS to anyone who asks me. A big hug and thank you for helping my brother to fulfill this great dream.

Thanks to Ron, I improved my English beyond expectations and after staying with them I had but one wish: live abroad! I’m 23 now and about to start a PhD where I’ll have to split my time between Canada and France.

TESS was the best student visa consultancy firm I have ever hired. The work carried out by the company was exceptional. All in an agile way, conveying complete security and confidence. I recommend it to everyone.

It was a kind and thoughtful gesture, that showed me how much TESS cared. TESS USA INC. Embraced me, nurtured me, and believed in me. That made all the difference in how I have experienced exchange. The time passed and the idea of living in the USA for six month was not terrifying anymore, as it was in the beginning. I lived with an amazing host family, that welcomed me as I was part of their own family.
