Albuquerque Academy has two exchange programs that allow students to experience foreign cultures. The Global Languages Exchange Program provides Albuquerque Academy students and their international counterparts the opportunity to live and study in a host country. Ran through our World Languages department, these two- or three-week exchanges allow students in grades 6 through 12 to move beyond the passive observation (tourism) of a foreign culture to engage actively in the classroom, school, family, and community life of a host country. The second program, Academic Exchanges, give students the opportunity for both domestic and international exchanges. Participation in a different geographical, educational, linguistic, or cultural setting can provide excellent opportunities for personal and intellectual growth. During the sophomore and junior years, students can spend up to a semester studying abroad or at another school in the states.
The Exchange Program is another opportunity for Academy students to be creative, independent thinkers by exploring the world through hands-on experience.
