Hosting (for those interested in an exchange) You may skip this section if you are choosing an academic or service trip
What makes an exchange so meaningful and impactful is the relationship between students. From previous exchanges, we’ve learned that students whose families hosted each other became better friends and had a more meaningful experience by sharing each other’s’ cultures in each other’s home. You are not expected to "entertain" a student. They are here to learn about our culture. You would treat them just as you would any other member of your family.
A delegation from Spain will come to SMCA next school year .
Students taking part in the Spain exchange are required to host a student.
If you’d like to learn more about hosting a student contact Carlon Haas at

Tell Us About Yourself
As you know, we have limited slots available for each trip. This section tells us more about yourself and why you are choosing the trip you would like to go on. It is VERY important that you take time to answer these questions, as they are part of the criteria for selection.
Why do you want to go on this trip?
What positive qualities and characteristics will you bring to the group?
Is there anything else you'd like to add to this application that you want the Program Leaders to know when considering your application?
If you are not chosen for the trip you applied for, are there other trips you'd like to be considered for? (please state the trip; if multiple trips, rank them in order of preference)
