Students can study abroad
Qualified high school students are invited to spend an academic year
or summer in Europe, Asia, North and South America, New Zealand,
Australia or South Africa as part of the World Heritage exchange program.
Students ages 15 to 18 years old are eligible and will be chosen
based on their academic performance, character references and desire to
experience life abroad with a volunteer host family.
World Heritage also provides opportunities for families to host
international students who will attend the local high school for an academic year.
