need help finding a school for a 15 year old Chinese girl

my associate in China wants his daughter to study in the US, learn better English, etc. She's only 15, speaks just okay English (not great).... He wants her to study here at a high school.... but i think it will have to be a private high school... and she will have to live at the school & be supervised... Can anyone help me determine what is involved ? Does she get a foreign student temporary Visa (or something like that) ? Also, he (& I) know nothing about this process.... so i think in terms of location, anything will do.... I need to provide him with choices, locations, costs, what accommodations they can offer, etc. If you need more info., please feel free to ask... one problem about my (& his) position is because we are 'ignorant' about this whole matter, we're not even positive about what the right questions are....

Road Trip! Gainesville, FL to Austin, TX this fall. Suggestions, advice?

I've been to the United States (NYC, San Francisco, and the Pacific Northwest) many times but never to the south – with the exception of Florida if that counts.

Why isn't Congress's Salary Paid by the States?

Can anyone explain to me the reason why the pay for members of the United States Congress is paid by the federal government and not their respective states? Was such a system ever considered and rejected and, if so, why? I recognize that the offices are federal, but their ties to their state is the very reason they are there. Wouldn't state legislatures want that control or were they happy to dump the costs onto the federal government? This seems like something that would have been debated very early in our history yet I can't find any info on it. Thanks.
