Private Schools

Similar to our J visa Public School Program, our F1 Private School Programs are run with the same regulations, detail, and support.

Making the decision to study abroad can be overwhelming. You may want to choose the least expensive path. Don’t be fooled by cheaper programs. You have one chance at success and TLUSA offers the best advice to make that happen.

Our F1 visa, private school program is run with professionalism and attention to detail. We hand-select the finest schools, with a variety of course offerings, at price ranges to meet any budget.

Our schools are selected based on the following criteria:

  • - A/P and Honors Classes
  • - Openness to the international community
  • - Where graduates go on to study
  • - Cost versus educational value

You can be assured that you will receive a quality education that will have a positive and lasting effect on you for the rest of your life!

School requirements:
Requirements for private schools can vary. Some have very strict English proficiency and grade requirements. Some do not accept seniors. Once we learn what is most important to you, we will give you a list of schools that best suits you to choose from. Together we will make a decision that is right for you.
If a school is not on our list or you have a specific school in mind, no worries! Let us know and we can make it happen.

Want to host a private school student?
Families across the U.S. are needed to host private school students. While the need relies on a student’s interest and acceptance into a school near you, there are options available. Families that host private school students are compensated a reasonable stipend to offset the costs of hosting. Please see our Host A Student section for more information.
