    Housing & Meals
    Students live alongside staff in our residential houses. A high staff to student ratio and constant availability and support promote positive language and personal development. Students are placed in house groups with a mixture of ages and nationalities. Room are comfortably equipped with a bed, linens and a pillow, desk with a lamp and chair, and a dresser. Students are assigned roommates based on age and language.

Residential houses are secured and each student is issued a key to his or her room. New Hampton School employs overnight security for the campus to further promote safety on our campus.
    Students are met at the airport by AELP staff wearing identifying T-shirts and carry identification. At the end of the program, students are accompanied to passport control or Unaccompanied Minors are escorted to departure gates.

    All AELP students will be enrolled in the Student Injury and Sickness Insurance Plan included with tuition. Doctors’ appointments may be scheduled as needed.
