Program Overview

Program Description:
AFS (formerly the American Field Service) is a leader in intercultural learning and offers international exchange programs in more than 40 countries around the world. We've been exchanging students throughout the world for 60 years. That is six decades of history and experience in international education with an exemplary record of safety, security, and service to students, parents, and educators.

AFS Mission: AFS-USA works toward a more just and peaceful world by providing international and intercultural learning experiences to individuals, families, schools, and communities through a global volunteer partnership.

Norway is famous for its breathtaking glaciers and fjords, but this country also has large forested areas, rich farmland, gentle valleys, and sunny beaches along its Gulf Stream-warmed coastline...

Colleges recommend high school study abroad experiences - as these programs provide the opportunity to develop confidence and self-reliance before pursuing higher education. In addition, after exploring the world you may have a clearer vision of what you'd like to study in college. As a result, you may spend less time switching majors, which means you'll save time and money. An exchange program also boosts college applications and gives you an immediate advantage when applying for scholarships.

Plus, the language skills you develop on an AFS program might exempt you from required language courses, thus enabling you to finish college sooner. Some students have received as much as 18 hours language credit-almost enough to provide a minor in language and a huge financial savings when you figure the cost of credits.
Setting Description:
Norwegian architecture is renowned for its stave churches (among the oldest wooden buildings on earth). Citizens are avid winter sport enthusiasts, with skiing ranking as a national pastime. In the summer, hiking through the forests and mountains is popular. You'll learn all about Norwegian culture in an orientation upon your arrival, including a week-long language and culture camp. Later in the year, you'll be able to help with a week-long community service project in your community. Norwegian families encourage their teenagers to be active and social, so be ready to participate in sports and be interested in outdoor excursions.
