Student Exchange Programme, Gerstell Academy USA

Date: April 2020

Trip Description

International learning and knowledge lead students towards acceptance and understanding of an array of different cultural and community perspectives. We are delighted that Aiglon has initiated a new and exciting exchange programme with a partner school near Baltimore, USA through two staff members currently engaged in Masters studies.

Gerstell Academy is an educational establishment with academic rigour and a distinct focus on Leadership. Its mission of Leadership, Honour and Courage has excellent synergy with the Aiglon Guiding Principles.

This exchange will provide a unique opportunity for Aiglon students to attend a US school for a week with our students being expected to fully engage throughout with all lessons and activities at Gerstell. The second week enables their exchange ‘buddy’ to engage in all our activities back here at Aiglon.

Such an experience provides very valuable material for college essays and also enables Aiglon students to see a different system of education to the IB.

Whilst in USA, we will also spend some time in New York City and Washington DC, and at colleges and universities in order for our students to gain maximum understanding of the opportunities open to them when they graduate from Aiglon.

Practical Information

The trip is offered to students of good academic standing in Year 12 and takes place early in the summer term.
