Becoming an Exchange Student

2012 - 2013 Exchange Students fall & Christmas 041A North Penn student can express interest in becoming an exchange student to one of our partner schools.  Students are generally sent during their 11th grade (junior year) therefore an interested student needs to complete an application in their 10th grade (sophmore).

All applicants are interviewed and one student is selected for each partner school to represent the North Penn High School for the school exchange year.

All applicants must be willing to give up the entire junior grade at North Penn and forgo the North Penn activities during that year.  This experience is a wonderful opportunity to study abroad, immerse them in another culture, and to engage in a rewarding experience that will bring about a perspective that is sure to enrich the student’s life.

The selected student will experience life with a host family that not only provides a safe and caring environment, but will help you adjust in this different culture.   Sharing in the day to day activities of a foreign house will develop an appreciation for people around the world and will help you become a better citizen of the world.

The selected exchange student is awarded a full scholarship, which includes travel, tuition to partner school, a monthly stipent and room and board with a host family.
