Nacel Open Door, Inc., a nonprofit student exchange organization dedicated to international understanding and language education.
NOD has different programs to meet the varying desires of international students who are interested in exploring the world. For students who want a full year of study in another culture, NOD offers academic programs in both public and private schools. For those students more inclined to participate in short-term programs, NOD offers tutorials, homestays, and touring programs.
Language acquisition, experiential learning, global exploration, formal college preparatory education, and advanced online learning have become the hallmarks of Nacel.
The NOD National Office is located in St. Paul, MN. Our network of coordinators and regional managers, assisted by a team of local representatives, organize programs on state and local levels. NOD also employs both full-time and part-time employees to administer programs worldwide.
Nacel International is a worldwide federation of organizations, companies, and representatives working together to deliver a culturally-immersive education around the globe. Nacel International is governed by a group of founding partners who work together to ensure standardized quality of programs and provide mutual support worldwide.
