The principle concept of the semester in Spain is the same as that of the school year and the trimester. Over the weeks and months, our students will be part of their own family and thereby participate in their everyday life and routines.
It is also a whole semester, in which the exchange students will go to school. The visit to the school will then become common place for them as well as for the other Spanish students, who will eventually become their classmates/friends. Homework and examinations are a must too!
This program organizes a unique stay in a Spanish High School for all students looking for a true academic and linguistic immersion. The program lengths vary from short to long, and students can choose their hosting area as well.
All students are placed in Spanish host families, which are screened and accept to host the student as another member of their family. Host families ask that the student be interactive and social. In host family accommodation, all meals are included that are eaten in the host home.
Basic High School Program: Students are placed in the best local public school option possible. Most students walk just 5-15 minutes to school, while others in larger areas have to take a bus or train for 15-30 minutes.
Elite High School Program: Students are able to choose their semi-private or private schools from a selection. Transportation to the host school may include walking or going by car.
