Students who are age 16, 17, or 18 are invited to apply to live abroad for one academic year. That year may be your Junior, Senior, or the year after your Senior year.
Outbound students are asked to cover the cost of a round trip airline ticket, health insurance, and spending money for their year abroad. Students with a strong interest in Foreign Language and a good GPA will be considered. Information for future potential host families will also be provided.
