Counseling News

Students and Parents:  Would you like the chance to make a life-long friend from another country? Would you like the opportunity to experience another culture while in the comfort of your own home? Maybe you can do both by hosting a foreign exchange student in your home during the next school year!! There are dozens of foreign exchange students from all around the world who are waiting for a chance to study for a year in the USA. All they need is a family to stay with -- maybe a family just like yours! If you are interested in learning more, contact Ms. Blue in Horizon's Counseling Office. She can put you in contact with one of our area's foreign exchange program representatives.
