Student Exchange Program with Germany

Monday, March 6, 2017

The Indiana Academy has a close partnership with a school in Germany called St. Afra. Over the Academy’s spring break, several administrators, faculty, and students traveled to St. Afra to learn more about their school and develop an immersive cultural exchange with St. Afra for this fall semester (August–December 2017). This fall the Academy will be sending two of our students to St. Afra, and they will send two of their students to our school for one semester.

Academy students will live in their dorm in Germany and will stay with their German host family over the breaks. Although not a requirement, the parents of the Academy students going to Germany may also be the host families for the incoming German girls over our breaks.

Over the past 5 years, St. Afra students and teachers have visited the Academy several times, and Academy faculty and staff have traveled to St. Afra school several times as well to continue strengthening our established relationship with this German school for academically gifted students.
