Recently, 77 students in grades 8-12 participated in our global exchange program in 8 countries. Every year during our campus Exchange Fair, students share their experiences with fellow ASH prospective global exchange students. Chile, France, Italy, Austria, Spain, Japan, Australia ... where would you like to go on exchange?
Qualified students in grades 8-12 can take advantage of Sacred Heart's unique exchange program, staying with a host family and attending another school in the national or international Sacred Heart Network for several weeks.
Past participants have attended schools in France, Chile, the U.K., Ireland, Peru, Austria, Spain and Australia. And they consistently rate the experience as one of the most formative of their young lives, in terms of broadening their perspective and building lifelong friendships.
One important component of our exchange program is reciprocity. Our Rosary students attend school and live with a Sacred Heart family in another country. Before or after her trip, the Rosary student in turn will host an international student in New Orleans. Hosting allows our students to view their own country, culture and lifestyle through the eyes of their exchange student – and costs are minimal.
