High school students often wonder what it would be like attend school in another country and experience its culture, people, and geography while also learning the language. In partnership with Waldorf schools all over the world, students at Academe of the Oaks have the opportunity to make this dream a reality.
Sophomores or juniors may apply to participate in our international exchange program, which places accepted students with a family in another country for an extended period of time, typically two or three months. Students request a destination—such as Germany, Austria, France, Italy, Spain, Argentina, Peru, Chile, Israel and Japan—and live with a student and his or her family from a Waldorf school there. As part of the exchange program, our students also host their exchange partners here in Atlanta. Lifelong connections are made expanding our student’s world view. It is an exciting and meaningful experience for everyone involved.

“Not only was I able to deepen my friendship with my exchange partner, I made great friends in Lugano, people I’m still regularly in touch with. I learned a little bit from every person I met there, everything from the vocabulary of Italian to the secrets of local cooking, from the cultural etiquette of the Swiss to the tricks of skiing (which I failed to master, but enjoyed immensely).”
Academe warmly welcomes applications from qualified international students who would like an education at our school. We are approved to issue the I-20 needed by non-U.S. citizens to study in the United States. Students from many countries have attended our school.
