Global Opportunities

International Exchanges

St. Christopher’s has a growing number of exchanges with schools around the globe.

For little more than the cost of airfare and spending money, St. Chris Upper School students can travel to Australia or New Zealand during X-Term.  As part of the exchange, participants will host a student from one of our partner schools. Below are more details about each exchange.  If you have questions, or if you are a St. Christopher's student and you’d like to apply, contact Emmett Carlson, coordinator of Upper School exchanges, at or Stuart Ferguson at
