Bridging the Cultural Gap

Today’s world is globally interdependent and culturally diverse. The global leaders of tomorrow are the students of today who succeed academically and gain the experience of living and appreciating different cultures and languages. International students learn to respond confidently to our ever changing world.  As a member of the Ivy International family, our students receive a level of support that allows them to make an easier transition into the American education system.



Before students even begin school, IIG helps to build a foundation that will allow them to succeed in their new environment. Through a series of orientations, IIG ensures that the student, their school, and their host family or residential faculty member are all prepared for the challenges and benefits of the international student experience.

Whether our students are living in Ivy sponsored dormitories or with carefully selected Homestay Families, life outside of the classroom is an exciting part of American culture.  IIG students can trust that they will be in the best possible care, whatever environment they are living in.


At IIG, we believe that one of the fundamental ways we can help our students achieve academic success is by providing them with a reliable and caring support network. We build this support network through constant communication about, understanding of, and involvement in each child’s academic progress. In combination with regular communication between the student, parents, IIG, and the school, this continual, comprehensive support is crucial to help each child achieve his or her own academic excellence and recognition.


At IIG, we understand how difficult it is for parents to send their son or daughter halfway across the world. We are also honored that the parents have entrusted us with their child’s education, safety, and comfort. Furthermore, we believe that parents are an indispensable partner in creating a successful international academic and residential experience for our students. Therefore, IIG devotes a significant amount of resources and time to ensure that IIG parents are informed, listened to, and supported.


IIG also handles a wide range of logistical issues for our students. By doing so, students can devote their time to their studies and enjoying a rich cultural experience while their parents can rest assured back in China that IIG has their student’s basic needs covered.  Such support can include:

  • Airport Transportation
  • Medical Insurance
  • Counseling Services

Congratulations on your decision to study abroad! You have taken a bold and courageous step toward becoming a leader in an ever-changing world. Ivy International looks forward to joining you on this exciting journey!


Ivy International’s reports about my child’s progress allow parents to rest assured that everything is okay with our child in America.
