The Short-Term Exchange Program (STEP) offers the opportunity for qualified students to experience a cultural exchange during summer months. The STEP program is a family-to-family and club-to-club exchange experience – students travel abroad, hosted by a family with a similar age student and host that foreign student from the family they visit. A typical STEP exchange lasts two months; one month abroad and one month hosting in the USA. (But can be longer and not necessarily in conjunction with each other.)
