Student Exchange Program
Highland Hall has offered a successful high school student exchange program for over twenty-five years.
Exchanges have taken place with Waldorf schools in countries such as Germany, Austria, Israel, Brazil, Peru, and the Netherlands. While staying with a host family, students immerse themselves in the local language and culture while continuing their studies at a Waldorf School.
