World Language Program
Enrichment & Access
The World Language Program at Cary Academy requires that all sophomores participate in an international exchange program. With the obvious intentions of improving the students’ language skills, the two week trip also intends to foster the personal growth of the students by broadening their perspective and world vision.
The Cary Academy exchange program is based upon reciprocal partnerships between the school and schools in Argentina, Austria, Chile, China and France. While abroad the students spend their time 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 the partner schools for a home-stay experience in their own community.
By living with a host family, students come to see the world not only through their own cultural lens, but also through the cultural lens of the country that they are visiting. The result is a far broader perspective than could ever be achieved by touring alone.
