Registering for Classes

How do I register?


All registrations are done online through our secure registration system. You will need a credit card and valid email address. Click here to find and register for the courses that work for you.




Can I take two 3-day weekend courses in different cities?


Yes, however, you would have to pay the $295 tuition for each course because our partner schools are different in each city.




Does it matter in which order I take the courses?


Nope! You can sign up for weekend courses as they best fit your schedule and interests.




I live in a city where the program is not offered. Can I still attend your course?


Yes, you are welcome to attend courses in any city you wish. Because you are responsible for arranging your own airfare and accommodations, you may want to attend a 4-day weekend in Salt Lake City, San Diego or Tampa so you only have to fly once.




My friend is also taking the course; can we be together?


If you register early for the same course, this can usually be arranged. Contact your program coordinator. We do ask that you be flexible with your activity selections.

Course Schedules & Descriptions

What are your courses about?


Our weekend courses are designed to help you get the most out of your year in the U.S.
"Make a Difference" explores topics such as culture shock, goals for au pairs, diversity in the U.S., communities and service learning, stereotypes and conflict resolution. Students also get to participate in a community service experience.
"Discover Your City" dives into U.S. history, politics, holidays and rituals while comparing the US to countries from all over the world. You will also become an expert on your selected city where the class is held.
"Explore our Environment" turns you into an environmental scientist for the weekend as you explore topics such as conservation, environmental tourism, healthy habitats, water chemistry, and wilderness geocaching. "Arts and Entertainment" explores how the entertainment industry has influenced American culture and history while allowing you to experience the "creative capitals of the world." Interactive workshops and field trips give you a chance to participate in the Visual or Performing arts depending on which track you choose.
For each course, several excursions are scheduled throughout the weekend so you can learn more about the city where your course takes place and explore class topics in an interesting and educational way. Learn more.
