High School Abroad Programs
“Study Abroad” means just that. All foreign exchange students in Rotary International’s Long Term Exchange Program (LTEP) are required to attend high school while on exchange. Eligible students who have just graduated from high school and going on exchange during their gap year are still required to attend high school full time in their assigned foreign country – it’s a mandatory part of the cultural immersion. The long term exchange program usually lasts one academic year, during which you attend school and live with 2 – 3 families in your host country. This is Rotary International’s flagship exchange program. To gain a greater understanding of the culture, you will live with at least two host families during your stay. Studying abroad as a high school foreign exchange student is an immersion into the culture of another country.
