MyEducation kan tilby kommende utvekslingselever å gå på private high school i USA. Den største fordelen ved private high schools er at skolene og klassene er mindre. Med færre elever i klassene har man mer tid til den enkelte elev og det er lettere å få plass på de aktivitetene og fagene man ønsker. Velger man private high school får man raskere plassering, og den familien man skal bo hos vil med stor sannsynlighet være bekjent av skolen. Det er fordi vertsfamiliene som regel har eller har hatt barn på samme skole. Vertsfamiliene er som regel velstående familier.

Velger man dette programmet har man også innflytelse på hvilken stat man ønsker seg til - spesielt hvis man er ute i god tid.​
