INFORMATION MEETINGS

 

Attending one of our information meeting gives you and your parents the opportunity to personally meet our staff.  You can either attend a physical information meeting in your area or an online information session if there isn't a physical one coming up where you live. Both forms of information meeting will give you comprehensive information about our unique high school exchanges. The online sessions are held monthly via Zoom, a video conferencing service which makes it easy for anyone to join in. We encourage parents, students and school teachers to attend and get familiar with our high school exchanges and the opportunities that we offer.

To register for either a physical or online session, please RSVP below and we’ll be in touch with further details. We look forward to meeting you and answering your questions!
