For High School Campus Students Only
You can get started in 3 easy steps:
We are pausing all international exchanges, both RSSAA students traveling to partner schools and partner school students attending RSSAA, until we are through the COVID-19 pandemic effects on travel and international flights.
Many High School students participate in an international exchange during their sophomore or junior years. The information on this page is designed to help your family consider the possibility of exchange and to find the necessary paperwork once the decision to take an exchange is made.
Before students can go on an international exchange they have to meet with a High School Coordinator and be approved for the exchange. We determine that they are academically prepared to miss a significant part of the regular curriculum, and that their language skills are sufficient for the challenges of living in a non-English speaking household. Therefore, please schedule a conversation as soon as possible after you begin to seriously consider the possibility of exchange.
We are pausing our regularly scheduled trips until we are through the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects on travel and international flights. Below you can find information about our past trips to get an idea of our normal offerings.
