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, New Zealand, or the Czech Republic for several weeks in the summer or a full academic semester, depending on the exchange.  In addition, each exchange includes the opportunity to host a student from the partner school, and the brand new India exchange includes the opportunity to host, but not yet to travel.  Below are more details about each exchange.  If you have questions about any of the exchanges, or if you are a St. Chris student and you’d like to apply, contact Emmett Carlson, coordinator of Upper School exchanges, at carlsone@stcva.org, Stuart Ferguson at fergusons@stcva.org, or Fran Turner at turnerf@stcva.org.
