The creation of the international organization ASSE (American Scandinavian Student Exchange) dates from 1930, when the Swedish parliament approved the exchange program between Swedish and German students. This program was later extended by Great Britain and North America. Today ASSE has branches in 35 countries in the world.
The main activity of ASSE is the Academic Year Program. The quality of the program is ensured by long-standing traditions, experience, and excellent organization of the program. The branches in the Czech Republic and Slovakia have sent more than 3000 students to participate since 1992.
ASSE belongs to C.S.I.E.T. (Council on Standards for International Educational Travel) and NASSP (National Association of Secondary School Principals). USDS (U.S. Department of State) awarded ASSE the official statute of Exchange Visitor Program. The international center of ASSE was established in Laguna Beach, California.
Years of experiences proves that yearly study programs are the best lifetime investment that a parent can do for their child. It's surprising how much the program changes the child. Most of them will finally mature, find themselves and improve their abilities; for example being independent, having the courage to overcome obstacles and having the ability to communicate in foreign environment, which are all vital abilities to have. 
A part of the system of upbringing at host-country schools is building self-confidence and development. In this system, the consciousness is supported by the idea that the personality is unique, independent and free. A new world of traveling and culture is opened for students. They will get to know different kinds of people and make friends that will last forever. Their life horizons will expand and a better image of what they will do in the future will be developed. Knowledge of the language will be active, as they will learn how to think in English without any problems in communicating or writing.
