American Schools

ASSIST is the only non-profit international exchange organization that works exclusively with NAIS member schools, matching academically talented, multi-lingual international students with American independent secondary schools. During a one-year school stay, an ASSIST scholar-leader serves as a cultural ambassador actively participating in classes and extracurricular activities. Since 1969, nearly 5,000 student scholar-leaders from more than 50 nations, many underrepresented in independent school populations, have been matched with ASSIST-affiliated schools.
