Our international exchange and homestay opportunities for middle and upper school students promote global understanding and citizenship, foster a deep appreciation for the cultures of the world, and help students understand how the United States fits into a global context.
Harpeth Hall graduating eighth-graders who have completed two years of Spanish or French in 7th and 8th grade have the opportunity to use their language skills during a one-week summer academic travel trip to Costa Rica or Québec. Both are immersion trips and involve living with a local family.
Harpeth Hall offers an international exchange program for upper school students with schools in China, France, Germany, New Zealand, and South Africa. This cross-cultural interaction provides our students with awareness, understanding, and appreciation of others and how they live. They live with host families, attend our partner schools, and in return, host young women from these countries.
