High School Group Exchange Program

Alandis Travel provides customized high school group exchange programs with local high schools in Seville, Spain

What is a high school group exchange program?

Alandis’ High School Group Exchange Program is a cultural immersion experience consisting of an exchange of students from one high school to another, with the option of living with the same family as the student you are exchanging with.

Although the norm is to live 24/7 with a host family, if the high school does not have the option of hosting students in families, the exchange may also be organized through student residences.

High school group exchanges are of short duration, typically lasting anywhere from 2-4 weeks.

Our aim is to benefit high school students personally, educationally, and culturally thanks to genuine, authentic immersion.

Group exchange programs are a unique opportunity for students to experience a new culture, learn a new language, and gain valuable skills that will benefit them in their future academic and professional pursuits.

Your high school students will also make new friends from different parts of the world, and broaden their perspectives on global issues.
