US High School Internationals Triple

Over the past several years, inbound international students coming to the U.S. to earn a high school diploma have grown at a much higher rate and they now out-number those travelling to the U.S. to participate in exchange programs. The number of international students enrolled directly in U.S. secondary programs more than tripled from fall 2004 to fall 2013 (Student Exchange Visitor Program [SEVP], 2004; 2013), while the number of exchange students grew only about 15 percent during the same period (Council on Standards for International Educational Travel [CSIET] 2013; 2014). In October 2013 there were 73,019 international students pursuing a secondary-level education in the U.S., with 48,632 or 67 percent of these enrolled for a full diploma.
