This year, we're pleased to be able to send six 9th grade Spanish students to Mexico.
Students will travel to Tlaxcala, a provincial capital and a safe and prosperous city of 90,000, about 75 miles east of Mexico City, on the way to Veracruz.
Traveling to Mexico (Jan. 2-Jan. 27, during January Term)
Hosting in Philadelphia (Apr. 2-Apr. 28)
Student Info Session: Thursday, October 12, 11:30 a.m.-12 p.m. in Sharpless 220
Parent Info Session: Wednesday, October 11, 6-7 p.m. in Sharpless 220

Here is the 2017-18 Mexico Exchange Application.
Cost (which will include flights and other travel expenses) will be calculated later in the process, closer to flight purchase dates. For reference, the 2016-2017 cost was $1,000.
Students are selected from a competitive pool of applicants for this exchange. If a student is not selected to participate this year, the Modern Language department has a number of contacts for travel during Junior Projects and other travel opportunities.
