Our Classic High School program is the traditional exchange program, where you are placed with a caring family somewhere in Germany. It is the perfect program if you are looking for a genuine German exchange experience. After being paired with the right host family for you, the team will enrol you in a local high school.
Your future host family can live anywhere around Germany. You may experience the German way of life near the larger cities of Berlin, Hamburg or Munich, in the countryside around vast fields or somewhere along the coast in Northern Germany. You will be sure to have a unique and unforgettable experience of this diverse country.
