International Fee-paying Student Program
Hundreds of thousands of students from countries in Asia, Europe and South America currently pay to attend public high schools in Australia, New Zealand and Canada. Immigration law introduced in 1996 has made US public schools unattractive to these students. Senator Schumer (D-NY) lead a bill (S.744) which has now been passed in the United States Senate and would remove a one-year visa limitation thereby allowing international students a new choice of destination. The House of Representatives now needs to pass equivalent legislation before the President could sign the bill into law. Public high schools will have to compete with two decades of income, promotion and experience held by schools in New Zealand and Australia.
A flood of enquiries may soon come to superintendents and principals from agents and international students but they may not be in a position to respond. Those schools who prepare now could directly gain hundreds of thousands of dollars each year in discretionery income. Serveschools provides systems and experience to enable high schools to directly promote and operate an international fee-paying student program capable of competing with established overseas high schools in recruiting students originating from Korea, China, Brazil, India, Germany and the like.
A Unique Opportunity for 2014
