Some high schools in the United States for foreign students include the American University Preparatory School in Los Angeles, the International School of the Peninsula in San Francisco, and Avenues: The World School in New York. U.S. universities popular with international students include Northeastern and the University of San Francisco.
A higher concentration of high schools catering to international students exists on the coasts of the country and in large metropolitan areas. One program that seeks to provide high school students access to schools in the United States is the USA High School Plus program.
International students are more common in U.S. universities than in high schools. Some universities with high populations of international students include the State University of New York at Buffalo, Purdue University, Carnegie Mellon University, University of Tulsa and the Florida Institute of Technology.
The presence of international students is sometimes considered a selling point in U.S. universities, as it reflects a diverse student population. Although tuition is higher for international students, a wide variety of scholarships is available. One place to look for scholarships for international study is on university websites. Another resource, the National Association for College Admissions Counseling, provides a list of international recruitment agencies for students, universities and teachers.
