Foreign Exchange Program

overview and goals

The Rudolf Steiner High School offers the possibility of a foreign language exchange to another Waldorf School in the tenth grade. The program allows mature and motivated students to learn and live in a foreign country for up to four months. Foreign exchanges foster competence and fluency in a foreign language and immersion in a different cultural environment.

Each year, the high school Faculty and the Foreign Language Department determine how many exchanges will be available for the following year.

Host Country Possibilities

The school maintains relationships with Waldorf schools in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Spain and France to arrange foreign exchanges.
