Christmas International House (CIH) is a national program that gives you an opportunity to visit other cities around the United States and be the guest of an American community for two weeks during the Christmas Holiday. You will pay an application fee and provide your own, round-trip transportation to the CIH program you chose, and the program will host you in homes or dormitories at for 10 days or two weeks. Depending on the program you chose, there may be some costs to participate in some of the activities. This is an excellent way for you to get to know an American family, to see the USA, learn about American culture, and share your culture with Americans.
What CIH Students Say:
CIH was an absolutely wonderful experience for me to feel like I had a family in Atlanta and to learn about American cultures and values.

If you are an international student, and you really want to be with your family, then CIH is the only place...a family gives you love, care and friendship.
It's a precious memory I will never forget. Here I have met great friends and experienced my first Christmas in the US.
