Select High School puts you in control of your exchange. It’s up to you where you go, what you study, and how you spend your time. But it’s not always easy to make these decisions, especially when they’ll set the scene for a truly life-changing adventure.

You and your parents may also have different ideas about what’s important and how your time abroad should unfold. That’s okay, it happens a lot. It’s best to let everyone speak their mind and then come to us to help you find the right balance of must-haves and nice-to-haves.

Let Southern Cross Cultural Exchange help you. We’re the high school experts.
