Middle School Exchanges
ABATONE, ITALY (Coordinator: Sarah Graber)
BARILOCHE, ARGENTINA (Coordinator: Satya Leidner)
CHAMONIX, FRANCE (Coordinator: Sarah Graber)
SHIMUKAPPU, JAPAN (Coordinator: Kamala Marsh)
Aspen Sister Cities, Aspen Middle School, Aspen Community School, and Aspen Country Day School all work together to create a well-balanced program for eligible 8th grade students who are interested in experiencing an international exchange. Students must be in good academic and behavioral standing at their school. It is recommended that students be currently studying the language of their respective exchange country. In the case of the Shimukappu and Abetone programs, given that such language classes are not available at our schools, an online approved course may suffice.
