World Language Exchange Program

  Cary Academy proudly features an international exchange program for all sophomores as part of the school's world language curriculum. This exchange program is based upon reciprocal partnerships between our school and schools in Argentina, China, France and Germany. Cary Academy students have the opportunity to spend 14-18 days abroad--visiting a host school, attending classes, living with a host family, and experiencing daily life in the host community. In return, Cary Academy students and their families host groups of students from our partner schools for a home-stay experience in our own community.  

We invite you to learn more about this exciting opportunity by reading our
