The Academic Exchange Program in Spain offers students from all over the world the opportunity to get to know Spain, its culture, and the Spanish way of life. Students will live with a Spanish host family and participate in family life and activities.

The primary purpose of the program is to improve students’ understanding of Spanish culture and language through active participation in family, school, and community life. One of the secondary purposes is to give their Spanish hosts a chance to get to know more about a foreign country and its culture. Participants in this program should be mature ,responsible, and excited to learn and get involved in their new community.
