International Student Exchange

Each year, high school students from countries around the globe come for a semester or a full year of study in Jeffco Public Schools. Jeffco accepts students with either J-1 or F-1 visas. Students who wish to study in Jeffco on a J-1 visa must come through an approved international student exchange agency. Students who wish to study in Jeffco on an F-1 visa should contact the International Student Exchange Coordinator for further information and the F-1 application package.

Important Information for Agencies

In order to place students in Jeffco, all agencies must apply annually and be accepted for inclusion on the district's list of approved agencies for the following academic school year. The agencies currently listed are approved for the current school year.

Agencies and host parents should not contact any school until the International Student Exchange Coordinator has signed and returned a permission slip to enroll form to the agency. Violation of this policy can result in suspension from Jeffco's approved agency list.

The Current Openings and Application Guidelines document contains information and resources for international exchange agencies wishing to place students at Jeffco.

Study Abroad Programs

Jeffco does not offer its own study abroad program for high school students, but study abroad opportunities do exist. Interested high school students should contact one of Jeffco's approved exchange agencies.
