Spanish Exchange

spanish_trip_1Take your Spanish to Spain and attend school in the heart of Madrid! During your month-long stay in the capital of Spain, you will participate in Milton Academy’s second longest-running exchange program.

The Spanish Exchange is a school-to-school program initiated in 1979. It runs jointly with Colegio El Pilar, a private school in Madrid. Our group travels with Milton faculty members to Spain at the beginning of June and welcomes the Spanish group to Milton Academy in September.

You will be paired with a student from El Pilar, and during the four weeks of your stay in Spain, you will live with your counterpart’s family, sharing in all of their activities and attending school during the week. You’ll also visit many historical and cultural sites, exploring the hidden corners and spectacular monuments of Madrid and surrounding areas. This is a wonderful opportunity to improve your Spanish and to experience the rich culture of Spain.

Because this is an exchange program, you will act as a host to your Spanish counterpart during the month of September. The Spanish student will live with your family, attend classes at Milton, and participate in school activities. If you are a boarder, you will be responsible for finding a day student host family for your Spanish guest. Milton families find the experience of hosting to be fun and rewarding—and often the start of lifelong friendships and connections with Spanish families.

Come join us for an unforgettable experience!
