Cultural Exchange Program

Spanish Cultural Exchange 2022-23

 

As life begins to return to normal, we are excited to re-launch BG’s Cultural Exchange Program for the 2022-23 school year! We will welcome a group of 25 students from Colegio Sagrado Corazón, our brother school in Vitoria, Spain from August 23 through September 6, 2022 (tentatively). During school days, the Spanish visitors will shadow their host student in school or they will go on local day trips. Evenings and weekends will be spent with their host students and host families, experiencing the life of an American teenager.

 

A group from BG will then travel to Vitoria in the Spring of 2023 (additional information to be sent shortly).

 

You do not need to speak Spanish in order to host, and you do not have to travel in order to host.

 

Hosting is a fantastic way to open your child’s eyes to another culture while sharing your way of life with one of these wonderful students. We hope you will consider welcoming one of them into your home. Those interested should fill out this form as soon as possible. 

 

Each year, many BG families open their hearts and their homes to an international exchange student from Colegio Sagrado Corazón, our brother school in Vitoria, Spain.

 

Exchange opportunities provide students with a chance to make a life-long friend with someone from another culture.

 

For many exchange students, going to a cookout, attending classes at an American school or participating in after school sports practice is a novelty, an experience they’ll remember for years to come. We invite you to share your home and traditions with an exchange student and show them what life is like for an American family.

 

For more information, please contact Sra. Alma Carroll.
