SCHOOLS PICK SCHOOLS

Alpha Exchanges are born from our open network of over 100 partner schools in China, the US and UK. Our experts work with administrators to help identify their best fit partner schools among our network based on the size, timing, budget and curricular goals of each program.

  • TRANSPARENT

    TRANSPARENT

    We manage the whole exchange so can integrate the design and fee structure to make it possible (and cheaper) for students to host and visit the same students––in the same school year.

  • FLEXIBLE

    FLEXIBLE

    Exchange between two cultures needn’t be limited to two schools, or even two cities. Some schools choose to alternate partner schools in our network each year to mix up the experience.

  • CHEAP

    CHEAP

    Educational travel shouldn’t be so expensive. By managing the whole exchange, we can implement a fee structure that makes it cheaper for students to travel by subsidizing them for hosting.

STUDENTS PICK STUDENTS

We save program coordinators the headaches of pairing students by putting our algorithms to work. Students are paired up in our system based on their age, gender, personality type, hobbies, favorite subjects and partner preferences.

STUDENTS PICK COURSES

We also save schools the scheduling nightmare of hosting visiting students by enabling students to create their own schedules. When students pick courses suited to them, they’re more engaged, their partners are less distracted and teachers are happy to have them in class.

STUDENTS HAVE A GREAT TIME

400 parents of 200 students from 10 schools in the US and China have already benefited from this new model for two-way student exchange. They love being able to design and control their own experience. It’s much more for much less than they’re used to.

COORDINATORS MANAGE WITH EASE

Program coordinators love having access to all information about their exchange in one place without having to raise a finger. Their portal shows them what all the students in the program are up to and how, when and where this impacts on everyone in their school.

AND THEN THEY DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN!

Schools keep working with us because our data-driven model means that we can learn from each program and tailor future programs to make them cheaper, more productive and varied enough that students want to stay involved for more than one year.

  • RECIPROCAL

    RECIPROCAL

    All exchanges should be two-way. For student exchanges, this means students should host and visit the same student. We design our programs to make sure this can happen in the same school year.

  • VARIED

    VARIED

    Programs are only as good as they are varied. Because have the flexibility to alternate partner schools in their network, we can make their itineraries different every year so that students benefit from attending more than once.

  • SUSTAINABLE

    SUSTAINABLE

    This case study on our pilot program with Boston Latin School and the Experimental High School Attached to Beijing Normal University shows how we grow programs organically over time to meet school needs.
