Program j1



Spending an entire academic year in a country like the United States, with another language, ensures you return being bilingual. English is a highly requested language and it will open doors for you in the future. You will have access to study with a different educational system that will allow you to take new subjects and gain different knowledge. This will enhance your academic journey and work prospects. As everyday life in the United States is very different from everyday life in other countries, it will be a change that will allow you to be more independent and gain a sense of responsibility that if it had not been for this adventure, you could not have achieved! Also, thanks to the regulation of the Ministry of Education and Professional Training, the school year in the United States is validated in Spain. From 2Learn Group we manage the validation and advise our students so that they comply with the regulations required by the Ministry.

“Enjoy a new stage in your life, discover a unique experience in the United States. An enriching journey that will make you evolve and live an adventure of dreams. Your life will take a 360-degree turn sharing your best year with a new family, friends, school and countless advantages at your fingertips. “

Our most common way of making ourselves known is by word of mouth, most clients choose us because they recommend us to entrust us with this type of program.


At 2Learn Group we make sure to offer the best quality in all of our programs.

We can always make it possible under the supervision of our professionals to guarantee the safety of the student.

Point out that they also have the telephone and email of the local and regional coordinators in the USA in charge of the same function, and that they will offer their help also at all times.


We are aware of the concern generated by sending a child abroad, since we have experienced it first-hand by also sending our children to this type of program. This is why we offer support and assistance for parents during the period in which their child is having the best experience in the United States. From Monday to Sunday 24 hours a day, we are always at your disposal. Our main objective is the safety and well-being of our students and to ensure that they return having lived one of the best experiences of their lives in which they can learn and above all meet their expectations and get a better preparation for their future.

support and assistance for parents

Studying in the United States requires a rigorous and exhaustive process. Therefore, we are the ones who take care of all the management and processing tasks. Forget worrying about paperwork, visa, embassy, ​​choice of subjects or validation upon return to Spain.

we take care of everything!

Students will not be alone, they have the help of a local coordinator. He will reside near the area to be available in case the student may need him in any situation, and will maintain contact with both the family and the school. In addition, they will also have an academic tutor assigned by the school.


The student will have the opportunity to choose where to enjoy their stay in the United States. The country is divided into 5 zones (West, Central, South and East), you can choose the zone or even the specific state.​

For this, it will be necessary to pay a supplement but this does not fully guarantee your stay in the desired area, in the event that the circumstance arises and that for any reason you cannot find a family in the desired area, it will be reimbursed the amount previously paid for said concept


The educational system

The educational system in the USA is very different from what we know here in Spain. There they prioritize practice and teamwork. Each week’s effort is valued and recognized through individual or group projects. Having a more practical vision makes the course much more bearable and fun since it is learned in a more enjoyable and close way. Each semester has 5-7 subjects, the choice of which will depend on the baccalaureate you want to take. 


It should be noted that in the United States they are more flexible and allow you to be much more free when it comes to designing the best academic program that suits you. They have a multitude of electives that will captivate the student’s curiosity. The start date depends on the district where the school is located. Classes will begin in mid to late August in the southern United States and in the north in early September. The first trimester, the shortest, lasts from the beginning until Christmas and the second, from Christmas until mid-May or the end of June.


As we have seen in American movies, extracurricular activities play a very fundamental role throughout the year. The areas that stand out the most are those of sports (basketball, American football, swimming, etc.) and art (theater, painting, music and even ceramics). High Schools have clubs of different themes in which students can participate, where they can not only develop extracurricular activities but also make new friends.


The educational system in the United States works differently, knowledge is assessed in a more practical way and through exams at a level appropriate for the student. Practice and know-how prevails over content memorization. This type of method is usually more effective since it helps the student to know how to put any content into practice, which may facilitate the success of their future work.


The student is the one who chooses the subjects he wants to take, this will allow him to adapt his schedule 100% to be able to train as best as possible in the sector of interest *. As we have mentioned previously, the classes will be much more practical and there must be participation in order to achieve a good grade and a better academic future.

* In choosing these subjects, you will have the support of the 2Learn Group coordinator who will guide you to ensure that these subjects can be validated.


This program is very popular in the United States and they are used to receiving exchange students. They have initiatives to make integration in the institute easier and make you feel part of the group. Exchange students are very prestigious and valued, as they have undergone a selection process to get there. The teachers will welcome you and help you during your stay.


Depending on the district to which your High School belongs, the length of the school year may vary. It usually lasts 9 and a half months, varying the start and end dates depending on the state you are in. Thus being able to establish the beginning of the school year from the end of July to the middle of September. In the cases in which the course begins earlier, it will end around the month of May and if it begins in September, it will end at the end of June.


Sports are highly valued and very important. From 2LearnGroup we encourage you to participate in those that you like the most as they will help you integrate into the High School, make new friends and enjoy the countless advantages offered by practicing sport. There are schools that are specialized in a specific sport or it varies depending on the season or weather. In general, this is the list of the most common sports:

· Soccer
· Tennis
· Volleyball

· Basketball
· Athletics
· Swimming

· Cheerleading
· Gymnastics
· Football


Apart from sports, another of the most characteristic and important things is the variety of clubs and extracurricular activities that the student has at their disposal. Apart from being able to do what you like, it will allow you to integrate better and meet many people interested in your same tastes, which will make your incorporation much faster and easier. There are many activities at your fingertips, you can choose one or more based on your hobbies or find a new hobby. The key is motivation and the desire to learn new things. 

These are some clubs or extracurricular activities that institutes have in the United States:

· Robotics
· Photography
· Theater

· Dance
· Volunteering
· United Nations

· Music band
· Entrepreneurship
· School magazine or newspaper


The role of teachers is key in your academic course. If you are a brilliant student, they will support you to be even better, they will not take away your merits but they will support you. If you are an ordinary student, who is good at some subjects but is more difficult in others, you will be motivated so that those that are more complicated are easier, enhancing your qualities.


We want to influence the quality of teaching as it becomes much more enjoyable for students. They learn by doing individual or group work, laboratory activities, debates … The participation and weekly work of the students is taken into account. All these activities will be the ones that later determine your grade.


Classes in the United States usually start at 8:00 am and end around 3:00 pm. What will really change are the subjects, sports or extracurricular activities in which the student has enrolled. From time to time, these activities may coincide with the student’s calendar, in which case you will have to adjust your schedule as best suits you in order to attend both classes and extracurricular activities. The advantage is that you can customize your schedule and make it as efficient as possible.



Students of the J1 public school academic program will spend their stay in the company of a new American family. They will have the opportunity to join as a member and learn about new cultures first hand. The purpose of these families is totally humble, since they participate in this type of program on a voluntary basis, with the aim of understanding and sharing interests with someone from another country. They will provide affection and protection during the entire period of the student’s stay. Families can vary in size, socio-cultural level, ethnicity or religion, but the degree of satisfaction of the students does not depend on this.


Success will depend a lot on the student’s ability to adapt to his new family, how he integrates into it, and the motivation to learn. Mention that there is no type of exclusion towards the student and there should not be towards the families either. To make sure we find the best choice, it should be noted that all families have been authorized and supervised by the US Department of State and the CSIET (Council on Standards for International Educational Travel). Which implies that all families have undergone a previous selection that consists of the contribution of references and criminal records of all family members, a personal interview, the home audit…


Guidance and advice will also be provided to facilitate the integration of the student from the first moment. The coordinators work hard to decrease the student’s wait time for information from the family. Therefore, it is necessary to be patient until they find the ideal family that best fits the student. Remember that it is the families who choose the student through the application forms, so it is very important to fill it out rigorously to find the perfect family.

El familia

Los estudiantes del programa académico en colegio público J1 pasarán su estancia en compañía de una nueva familia americana. Tendrán la oportunidad de integrarse como un miembro más y conocer nuevas culturas de primera mano. El propósito de estas familias es totalmente humilde, ya que participan en este tipo de programas de forma voluntaria, con el objetivo de entender y compartir intereses con alguien de otro país. Aportarán cariño, afecto y protección durante todo el periodo de la estancia del estudiante. Las familias pueden variar en tamaño, nivel socio-cultural, etnia o religión, pero el grado de satisfacción de los estudiantes no depende de esto. El éxito dependerá mucho de la capacidad de adaptación del estudiante a su nueva familia, de cómo este se integre en la misma y de la motivación por aprender. Mencionar, que no hay ningún tipo de exclusión hacia el estudiante y no debe haber tampoco hacia las familias. 


Para asegurarnos de acertar con la mejor elección, cabe destacar que todas las familias han sido autorizadas y supervisadas por el US Department of State y el CSIET (Council of Standards for International Educational Travel). Lo que implica que todas las familias han pasado por una selección previa que consta de la aportación de referencias y antecedentes penales de todos los miembros de la familia, una entrevista personal, la auditoría de la vivienda… También se les aportará orientación y asesoramiento para facilitar la integración del estudiante desde el primer momento. Las coordinadoras trabajan duro para disminuir el tiempo de espera del estudiante respecto a recibir información de la familia. Por ello, es necesario tener paciencia hasta que encuentren la familia ideal, que mejor encaje con el estudiante. Recordar, que son las familias quienes escogen al estudiante mediante los formularios de solicitud, por lo que es muy importante rellenarlo rigurosamente para encontrar a la familia perfecta.

The families that collaborate in these programs are not all the same, there are some with children, others without children, a father or a mother … Something that each and every one of them does share is the selection process, a rigorous method that they must pass families interested in being part of the program to establish that they are valid to host an international student during their academic year. The assigned and approved family cannot be turned away unless it jeopardizes the safety of the student.

In this program it is not allowed to return to Spain for Christmas or during your stay in the United States, or visits from family or friends except for the last two weeks before the end of the school year.
