Foreign Exchange Program Summary
St. Mary Catholic School (SMCS) has a vibrant and healthy exchange student hosting program. Years of experience have helped to streamline the process. On average, SMCS hosts 3-4 exchange students from Mexico in grades 7 & 8. More recently, we have hosted a Chinese exchange student as well. All of these exchange students not only experience unbelievable growth in their time here, but provide invaluable insights into their culture that might not otherwise be available to our domestic students. The great success of this program is evidence in the fact that we have begun hosting second-generation exchange students!
