  Spring offers a wide array of services to support our students.  
     
  • AIRPORT GREETING
At their request, students are met at the airport by their home stay family or a representative of SILC. (No Cost)

• HOMESTAYS WITH AMERICAN FAMILIES
A full-time Home Stay Coordinator places students with local families for room and board. (Cost is $700 per month)

• CONVERSATION PARTNERS
Conversation partners (CPs) provide an opportunity for students to gain practice conversing with a native English speaker one-on-one or in a small group on a variety of topics under the direction of a Listening/Speaking or Conversation class instructor. CPs are community members or students from area colleges and universities. Students who request extra conversation practice are assigned a CP to meet with them after classes. This service is free to students.

• ORIENTATION
On the first day of each term, new students participate in an orientation to the school, the college, and local transportation. They also receive assistance with obtaining college ID’s, parking permits, letters from Social Security, and bank accounts. (No cost)

• INTERNATIONAL STUDENT ADVISING
The International Student Advisor assists students with questions about visas, I-20’s, transfers to other institutions, and other related matters. (No cost)

• ACADEMIC COUNSELING AND COLLEGE/UNIVERSITY PLACEMENT
Students are encouraged to attend classes regularly and to achieve to the best of their abilities. As students progress through SILC’s levels, they are assisted with placement into appropriate colleges and universities. (No cost)

• LEARNING SUPPORT
Students can participate in a Study Hall each Monday and Tuesday after classes by referral from teachers or by their own choice. The teacher in charge of the session will give assistance with home work and by answering students’ questions in any of the skill areas.
(No cost)

• EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
Activities are scheduled each term, including spectator sports, skiing, mountain trips, shopping and more. Students also are encouraged to participate in Taste of Culture events each Wednesday organized by the college International Student Organization and SILC. Two big events are the International Dinner in the fall and the International Day in the spring. (Some activities, such as skiing, professional baseball, basketball have costs associated with the event.)
