Foreign Exchange Program

                                                           Foreign Student Exchange



MCPS recognizes that study abroad programs provide an international perspective for all students and gives them a more balanced understanding of their place in the global community.    Student's minds are opened to new perspectives and the program builds global competencies.  More importantly, educational travel and exchange connections help teenagers on both sides grow and gain maturity. 

These guidelines and procedures are established to promote rewarding cultural exchanges and to ensure that foreign exchange students in Montgomery County adhere to local expectations.

Exchange organizations should contact the Student Services office to indicate an interest in placing exchange students and provide an advance notice of their intent to place.

For more information regarding the foreign exchange process, you may contact the Student Services office at 540-382-5100, ext. 1023 or Renee Manning at
