Aspect Foundation was founded in 1985 as a small non-profit organization offering affordable study-abroad opportunities to students from around the world. Today, Aspect Foundation students live with volunteer host families in more than 350 communities throughout the United States. Aspect Foundation also offers American students the opportunity to spend a high school year or semester abroad.

Although Aspect Foundation has tripled in size, we continue to be a closely connected extended "family." Our dedicated community representatives provide personal support, advice and friendship to each student and host family. Quality is also a top priority. We adhere to strict standards for student and host family selection, and we provide all participants with solid preparation for this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

We receive grateful letters frequently from host families thanking us for their new "son" or "daughter;" from students who wish to thank us for the chance to have a real American family and to become fluent in English; and from natural parents who are delighted that their child has returned home as a mature and considerate person.

In our offices at home and abroad, our staff is committed to maintaining the same high standards of personalized service that have made a world of difference for hundreds of students and families worldwide. We feel fortunate to be able to continue offering the same memorable experience to students from more than 50 countries.
