Responsibility, Safety and Quality Since 1958
STS has more than 50 years experience with language and exchange
programs — longer than any other organization. All STS placement
partners in the U.S.A. are approved by the Council
on Standards for International Educational Travel (CSIET),
the American authority that supervises all exchange organizations.
This is the most important mark of quality that an exchange program
STS has offices all over the world with experienced staff always
ready to help our Ottawa exchange students with their once-in-a-lifetime
adventure. Our students stay with host families selected for their
genuine interest and commitment to take on a foreign student on
an idealistic basis. You will return home with memories, experience,
and friends that will be cherished forever.
How Does STS Offer Such Low-Priced Quality Programs?
In order to guarantee low-cost high-quality programs, STS receives
a tuition-free spot and a voluntary host family in every country
offered for every departing Canadian student. In return, STS provides
the same service to every foreign exchange student coming to Canada.
Therefore, STS exchange program costs are based on the premise
that the local school boards and student families agree to host
an exchange student for at least 5 months (10 for a school year
The outbound student family has the option to select an alternate
host family for the incoming student in their name and school
board. If the family is not willing to host and an alternate family
not an option, STS charges the outbound family a monthly fee for
another family to host in their name. The local school board determines
the fee in this scenario.
STS programs are not house-to-house exchanges unless specifically
arranged, meaning you can go to France on your exchange and host
someone from Brazil, for example. If you have any questions, please
call us toll-free at 1-855-815-1010 for more information.
Travel insurance is mandatory through STS for all our Ottawa exchange
students. Call STS Today to learn more about coverage and rates.
