Service Trips and Exchange Programs


Trimester exchange programs (South Africa and Australia) are open to students in grades 10, 11, 12, and PG. An application will be emailed to all eligible students in early November and due on November 27, 2018. Students will be invited to participate in a personal interview before a final determination is made.

The total cost of each exchange program is approximately $2,500. Students will not be responsible for paying additional tuition to the host schools, or paying for additional materials unless otherwise noted by the institution.

Not only do our service trips and exchange programs in the United States and around the world offer students the chance to experience new places, they allow unparalleled opportunities for self-discovery, learning, and growth.
