Broadening their horizons: School district to launch international exchange program

Mt. Vernon School Corp. recently announced plans to launch a comprehensive international exchange program, in which students from Anshan, China, and Maioli County, Taiwan, will be invited to attend Mt. Vernon Schools. In the future, the district would like to send its own students and teachers to learn abroad. For months, Mt. Vernon administrators have been working with educators in Taiwan and China to establish an international exchange program. Mt. Vernon Schools will be responsible for finding host families for the students it welcomes, and the students will pay tuition to Mt. Vernon to attend school.
The partnership with Taiwan and China is unique because there is no exchange organization working between the two school systems, as is the case for many programs. Students coming to Mt. Vernon will have the choice to spend two weeks here during a summer camp or to attend Mt. Vernon High School for a semester or full year.
