It is common practice for Jesuit schools to enter into exchange programmes where students from one locale visit another school and are hosted by their peers (read families) for a short while and the action is reciprocated a while later.
St George’s College began such an exchange with Boston College High in Massachusetts, USA in 2015. The programme was a great success and it has become an annual event. A select group of students accompanied by two members of staff visit Boston College High school for a period of approximately two weeks.
While there, the boys stay in families, attend school for some of the days and visit places of interest like downtown Boston, local colleges and universities and other historical or cultural sites. Each year the finer details are different.
The main aim of this exchange is to afford our students a chance to experience another culture from the vantage point of another Jesuit School. The experience is designed to be both educational and fun.
