Cambridge Institute of China Business Research Program

Assumption High School has contracted with the Cambridge Institute of China Business Research to offer a high school education for up to ten students from Mainland, China. The program is designed to offer American secondary education to Chinese youth who ultimately are seeking enrollment in American colleges and universities.

Generally speaking, Catholic high schools are the preferred choice of these students and their families, given the solid reputation for academic rigor which Catholic schools enjoy. The students are interviewed and selected by Assumption Catholic Schools staff; if accepted, they enroll for three years, assuming they can meet and maintain all standards and expectations set forth for all Assumption students.

The students pay full tuition as well as an annual stipend of $5000 to their host families. Host families in turn are expected to provide all services normally offered by host families of foreign exchange students.
