Living in a foreign land and taking part in its daily life opens a window into a world beyond the familiar. What will you learn about yourself abroad?
Students who study abroad gain many things: proficiency in another language, new friends, and a culture that becomes as important as their own. When they make the step to go abroad, student explore new cuisine, view unique landscapes and architecture, and become more confident and independent than they knew they could be. They come to know themselves, and that, after all, is what a Waldorf education is about.
In 10th or 11th grade, LCWS students can study abroad in another country. We have exchange relationships with several European schools in Germany, Switzerland, France and Hungary. Learn more about studying abroad.
Each year, we welcome international students from French, German, and English speaking countries. Visiting students partake in a formal exchange or independent residency. Learn more about visiting our school.
Become a Host Family
Give your family an unforgettable international experience by hosting an exchange student. For many, welcoming a teenager from another country is an adventure that enriches and adds to family life. You will experience a foreign culture without ever leaving home.
Although not required, we strongly urge families sending their student abroad to host an international student. Families interested in hosting an international student can do so even if they don’t have a high school-age student or a student going abroad.
