Catholic Student Exchange


Catholic Student Exchange is a program that gives students and families an opportunity to enrich their lives. Students between 11 and 16 years of age are eligible to participate in this cultural and educational experience. Latin-American students, who have been thoroughly selected and prepared, arrive in the US in mid October and return to their home in mid December (only for 8 weeks). They have all completed several years of education in English. All expenses, including air fare, ground transportation, full medical insurance, and spending money, are paid for by each exchange student.

While in the U.S., they attend all school and extracurricular activities of host student. While hosting, the U.S. families continue with their busy everyday activities and share their values, customs and traditions with their guests. These valuable experiences enhance understanding and tolerance of our different cultures.

Please consider giving your family and school this wondrous opportunity to make new and lasting friendships through our Catholic faith. Your hospitality will make a significant difference in the world.

Please send an email or call us for further information.
