The Student Exchange Program

The Global Village

One of the best ways to prepare students to participate in the global community is to provide them with the experience of learning about and getting to know students from around the world. Since 1980 Nativity has worked with schools in 22 different countries to provide that global experience for our students.

Visiting students come prepared to visit each classroom to share their nation’s culture and history with our students through age-appropriate activities. While in Cincinnati they live with Nativity families and attend classes at Nativity to experience American family and school life. Their visit always includes trips to local points of interest. The same thing happens when our students travel to another country. The exchange program is funded by families who choose to participate either as a host family or one who sends their son/daughter abroad.

The exchange program at Nativity is one of the reasons this is A Great Place to Be.  Meeting students in class and on the playground is a great way to learn about the world and to build friendships that can last a lifetime.

 

Through International School-to-School Experience (ISSE) we have worked with schools in India, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Bermuda, Argentina and Jamaica. 

Working with the Cincinnati - Kharkiv Sister Cities Project we exchanged delegations with English Specialist School #3 in Ukraine.


Nativity collaborated with the Cincinnati - Liuzhou Sister Cities Project to partner with Long Cheng Middle School in China.  Both schools signed a Memorandum of Understanding to govern their relationship.
