Hybrid dual diploma

This program is for students who go to the U.S. on exchange. It lets them combine the credits they earn abroad with credits earned online and at home toward two high school diplomas.
Study exchange + Online classes + Classes at home

You earn a dual diploma when you complete high school in your home country and earn six credits with a U.S. high school. Your U.S. study exchange earns you two credits, and you get the other four credits by taking online classes. So, that’s just four additional classes on top of your regular studies to graduate with a diploma from one of the most prestigious boarding high schools in the U.S. and your local high school. 

Study when you want to

You can earn the four online credits before you go on exchange, after you return, or both. There’s even an option to study in the summertime! The classes are asynchronous, which means you can start classes and study when you want to and pace them to fit your needs. Of course, you’ll still interact with teachers and classmates, so look forward to live sessions twice a month.

Take classes that interest you

You’ll take various classes during your exchange, including two required subjects: US History and English. For your online classes, you’ll have a choice of fascinating topics that aren’t available at most high schools. Deepening your knowledge in subjects that interest you will be fun and possibly inform what you study after high school.
