  • 1. Three w international North America’s leading international student programs Offering You The World PRIVATE HIGH SCHOOLS IN THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA
  • 2. American Culture Speaking the language, experiencing the culture and living in our communities offers insights no textbook ever can As the world’s “melting pot,” the sprawling country known as the United States is not just a single culture but the blending and co-existing of many. When you live here, you’ll explore what it truly means to be an American — in all its many forms. You may have visited before and seen the major landmarks, but if you want the true North American experience you have to go beyond the tourist sites. With Three W International you will live in our communities where you will make friends, go to school and learn the language. You will eat our food, laugh at our jokes and watch world events unfold from a uniquely American perspective. education Creativity is the ability to tackle and manipulate concepts in new and previously unthought of ways. But being creative is more than just being intelligent, it’s partially a product of one’s culture. North American culture, and especially its education, encourages individualism, problem-solving and the skills necessary to address tomorrow’s problems in imaginative and innovative ways. A North American education will give you more than just facts and knowledge, it will teach you to collaborate with others, to think original thoughts and to be the kind of innovator that future employers are looking for. Characteristics of American Culture The American mind-set is sometimes hard to understand, and often contradictory to the culture you come from. By living and learning in the United States, you’ll understand the unspoken protocols and cultural preferences that are important in North America. For example, did you know that Americans prefer a certain amount of “personal space?” Asking ‘how are you?’ is a simple greeting and not a question about your health. Americans smile — a lot. And when dining out, a tip of 15-20 percent is usually expected. These are just some of the things you’ll learn during your time abroad. National Parks The Landscape As the world’s third largest country, America offers a diverse and varied landscape. There are snow-capped mountains and tropical beaches, bustling metropolitan cities and small farming communities. In each region you will discover distinct traditions, customs and dialects. American Style Style While climate plays a part in how people dress, American dress is typically casual. Denim jeans, sneakers and sweatshirts are common for teenagers. American Food There’s no better way to get to know someone than to share a meal. One of the best learning opportunities you’ll enjoy is dining together in your host family’s home or in a restaurant. While there are some foods common to America, such as hot dogs, hamburgers and pizza, there are also regional specialties. And since America is a blending of cultures from around the world, you’re likely to find dishes from every corner of the globe. The Arts No matter where you come from, chances are you have heard American music and watched American television. The nation’s media and movie industries are popular worldwide. But when you live in the country, you’ll get a chance to explore America’s rich theatrical history, fine arts museums and diverse music scene as well.
  • 3. High School in America American High School culture has many facets friends While the ultimate aim of high school is education, there are a host of little things that color the teenage experience -- things that may seem unfamiliar to foreign students. To begin with, American high schools tend to be large, and the experiences can be just as big. There is a strong sense of community and togetherness as well. From football games to school dances, shopping at the mall to meeting up with friends, interaction is key. American students like to: Study together. Not only is collaboration important in school, it is also an integral part of American business. sports 8 school dances/prom 8 sporting events.

  • 78. no detail is overlooked Speaking the language, experiencing our culture and living in our communities offers insights no text book ever can Why Three W International is the best choice for your school The key to a successful international program is knowledge of the students and understanding their cultural and academic environments. We are heavily focused on this and invest our time and resources to further deepen our awareness. Three W International’s unique process ensures your school’s international program success by managing the screening, application, educational and environmental process from beginning to end. Our implementation process is second to none - we are there to assist your school in program start-ups, admission, home-stay selections, parent communication, educational programs, and any other questions that arise. Who we are Founded by Anna and Jason Wang, Three W International has served schools since 1998. From its humble beginnings, Three W International has maintained one vision: to provide an international program that produces the best possible experience for students and schools. Ever mindful of their goal, Three W International has seen tremendous growth in the number of students and schools it serves. Today, it has become an industry leader in the field of international student program management, representing over 80 schools in the United States and 10 in Canada. Although the number of students has increased, the philosophy and quality of service has never faltered. With the largest student success rate in the industry and unprecedented satisfaction of schools, Three W International bridges cultural boundaries and expands educational opportunities. From the very beginning there were absolutes that this exchange must offer: quality schools, exceptional students and reliable host families. This combination resulted in several unique outcomes. Schools benefitted academically and financially. Students were exposed to a first-rate educational and cultural experience. And host families not only enjoyed a wonderful learning experience, they were compensated generously for their hospitality. The idea worked so well that by 2012, Three W International had 1,500 students studying in more than 80 U.S. schools. Our primary objectives for the duration of a student’s enrollment include: z Creating a positive experience for both our students and the academic institution z Setting attainable goals for program implementation z Mobilizing the local faculty and providing them with the tools necessary for programmatic success z Making recommendations for the cultural integration of students into the school and community Three W International’s results speak for themselves which is why we boast a program attrition rate of less than 1% and homestay repositions of less than 2%.
