FLEX Program

Discover FLEX, Discover the World

The FLEX Program is a cultural exchange program of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State and administered in Serbia by American Councils for International Education: ACTR/ACCELS (American Councils). The program provides students from across Serbia with the opportunity to study in a U.S. high school and live in an American host family for one academic year.

The primary goal of the FLEX program is to improve mutual understanding and develop and strengthen long-term relationships between citizens of the United States and other peoples and countries. The U.S. Department of State supports exchanges for secondary school students from over 50 countries through FLEX and other academic year programs. Since the program’s inception in 1993, over 29,000 students have participated in the FLEX program.

If you are a citizen of Serbia, attending the 8th grade of primary, or first or second grade of secondary school, you can apply to FLEX.

The application process for the 2023-24 school year opened on September 1, 2022.
