INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE AND STUDY ABROAD PROGRAMS
High School students at Shining Mountain have the opportunity to deepen their language skills and widen their horizons by studying abroad. Students can go on exchange or to an immersion course eitherin the January or February of grade 10, during summer vacation or in September of 11th grade.
These exchanges and immersions need to be arranged well ahead of time in order to get the necessary paperwork and visas for both SMWS student as well as the exchange student who will be coming here. The Admissions Office recommends at least a six-month lead in time.
We have many requests from students in Germany and Austria wanting to come on exchange here, which makes it easy to find German and Austrian schools where our SMWS German students can study. SMWS Spanish students can go to a language immersion course or volunteer in a South American country.
