Summer and Short Stay

Why stay home during your summer or school break when you can travel abroad!

Terra Lingua USA offers a variety of programs to meet any need period. Just because they are shorter times does not mean you will be treated any less important. We are proud to say that we run our summer and short term programs with the same attention to detail, professionalism, and safety as our long term programs. Here are some of our choices.

Our short term academic programs are designed to give you a taste of studying in the U.S. without a long-term commitment. While you may enter the program any time during the school year (Sept-April) it’s most ideal to arrive at the start of the year or second semester in January. Programs can be customized to include school only, or school and excursions and can run from 2 weeks to 3 months. Groups and individuals are welcome!

Depending on whether you are attending a public or private school and the program length will determine whether a B or F visa is most applicable. You will not gain credit for your classes but will be held to the same expectations as U.S. students.

Space is limited in these programs so contact us right away with your interest.


  • Applications must be submitted no later than 10 weeks prior to requested start date.
  • Students in grades 7-12 may apply.
  • Students are placed in their current grade.
  • Students stay with a host family.
  • Credit will not be given.
  • Students must have a good understanding of English.
  • All standard school immunizations will be required.
