About ISE Students
Every ISE student is personally interviewed, screened and evaluated.
Every student application provides a biography and letter of application from the natural parents, photographs, letters of reference, original transcripts of grades, medical records and a signed letter of agreement to abide by the ISE program guidelines.
Every student is given an Orientation prior to departing his/her native country to inform and prepare them for their stay in the U.S.
ISE was founded in 1982 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the mission of "Educating Tomorrow's Leaders". ISE has been designated by the Department of State to issue the DS 2019 form enabling a student to enter the U.S. on a J-1 visa. On the basis of materials annually sumitted and reviewed, the Council on Standards for International Educational Travel (CSIET) has granted a listing to ISE for every year of operation since its inception.
