Sister School Exchange & Hosting
Ravenscroft families host Chinese students from Beijing High School #20 for a weeklong visit to Raleigh. During the summer, Ravenscroft students live with a Chinese host family in Beijing and attend classes with their Chinese peers at Beijing High School #20. After eight to ten days at the school and in Beijing, students travel to places like Shanghai, Xi'an, Suzhou, Qufu, and Mt. Taishan.
English-Speaking Union Program
Ravenscroft is a member of the English-Speaking Union, an organization that participates in Secondary School Exchange each year. Typically, a Ravenscroft family hosts an English-Speaking Union student from the UK or Argentina during the second semester until graduation. In addition to hosting, Ravenscroft also sends students to the UK and Argentina for a postgraduate gap year or semester.
