Student Exchange Program

Study Abroad

Highland Hall Waldorf School has offered a successful high school student exchange program for over twenty-five years. Students can participate in exchanges with Waldorf schools in any country where German, Spanish or English is spoken. While staying with a host family, students immerse themselves in the local language and culture while continuing their studies at a Waldorf school. 

The Exchange Program application fee for incoming families is $125.  There are no extra fees for the exchange process provided that the student is able to offer a reciprocal experience at their home school. Current Highland Hall students in grades 9-11 may apply to the program by completing the form below. The selection process includes teacher recommendations, interviews and communications between the families and the schools.

Students from Waldorf Schools in other countries who are interested in doing an exchange at Highland Hall should send a letter of interest to [email protected]. Due to a high volume of requests, we are unable to accommodate everyone. We keep all letters on file for our students to review. If a Highland Hall family expresses interest, the family will contact you directly. Then, you will be asked to submit an application and letter of recommendation. 

Visiting Waldorf Students

Highland Hall also accepts visiting Waldorf students (who have made their own lodging arrangements) for a period of up to three months. These students are eligible to enroll at a reduced tuition rate provided that they are currently enrolled at a Waldorf School abroad. Please complete our online application form to be considered as a visiting student.
