Welcome to FLAG's FLAG One F-1 Visa Program
The FLAG One Program was inspired, created by and named for those who seek to extend their program beyond traditional J-1 (Exchange Visitor Program) Visa. Providing a culturally enhanced education, FLAG One exceeds expectations and surpasses all standards in F-1 student programs. FLAG One works in partnership with progressive schools to prepare tomorrow's global leaders. Both schools and students trust the guidance and experience of FLAG One.
The FLAG One Program provides students the opportunity to discover themselves, learn, grow, become fluent in English, and promote global diplomacy. FLAG One is an F-1 Visa program that allows international students more than one year of study. This is an exciting opportunity for students who wish to choose where they would like to study, graduate, and earn an American high school diploma. FLAG One is a perfect launching program for university studies and language mastery.
Portrait of a FLAG Graduate
A Typical FLAG One graduate is a global thinker. They better grasp the larger world they live in and how they must not only take, but give as a citizen in it. They pursue academics as a foundation for a life of purpose and opportunity. Attending high school in the United States, they improve their English and understand better the unique culture America has, which rests outside of books and television. They have grown in their maturity to live independently and to work towards the greatest of their potential with solid self-governance.

Every parent wants the best for their child and FLAG One understands this desire. Our expert team of Local Coordinators and school staff are prepared to guide your family through the college process. Every year, FLAG One students receive offers from the top 30 schools within the United States.
Each international student is unique so we work early to determine the special qualities that your son/daughter may possess. This determines their best course of study as well as the best university option for them. You can trust FLAG to provide a world-class education and guidance that will bring both organization and success to their university pursuits.

What is an F-1 Visa?
To participate in the FLAG One Program, international students must receive their F-1 Visa. In the United States, the F-1 Visa is a type of non-immigrant student visa that allows foreigners to pursue academic studies and/or language training programs. F-1 students must maintain a full course of study and may be younger or older than the normal 15-18 age limit that is established by our J-1 (Exchange Visitor Program) Visa limits. F-1 Visas are only issued in U.S. embassies and consulates outside the United States.
By joining FLAG One, students will become ambassadors of their home country and are encouraged to share their own culture and customs with their American host family and classmates. It is exactly this type of program that fosters global understanding, thereby eliminating stereotypes, which is the ultimate goal of international student experiences.
