Sister School Exchange & Hosting

2015 Spain Exchange


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.

A reciprocal exchange program that includes an opportunity for students to first host a Spanish student for two to three weeks during the fall semester. Ravenscroft students then travel to Alcorcon, Madrid for two weeks in February, live with Spanish host families, attend classes at our partner school, Centro Escolar Amanecar, and participate in culturally rewarding activities.

"Going on the excursions with everyone and sharing meals with the whole group was such a fun way for the American and Spanish students to bond. In our free time, we would all try to plan fun activities together because we all wanted to be around each other. In ten days, we all became one big family." - Bella Church '18

"I spoke Spanish almost entirely and have seen a tremendous improvement! My family at first tried to make me feel comfortable by serving Western-style food but I told them I was excited to try Spanish food. They showed me around the area and even took me to a Real Madrid basketball game. " - Brenden Drumm '17
