Our French Exchange Program was started in 1948 with Falaise (in Normandy), as part of a Quaker initiative to help with war reparations.
Upper School French language students in eleventh and twelfth grades may elect to travel with a group of students for two weeks during Spring Break with Amy Celentano, head of the Modern Language Department. GFS students are hosted by students from the Lycée Liard.
Students have the opportunity to visit Mont St Michel, D-Day Beaches, Caen and the Tapestry of Bayeux in addition to attending classes.
This exchange travels to France in the first year and hosts the same French students the following year during their spring break in April. Between 18 and 24 students may participate.
