Italian Exchange Program

Moderator: Mr. Paul Bourke  (

Program Overview: Eight SI students will host an Italian student from Leone XIII for 10-15 days in November, then travel to Italy in early June for two to three weeks.  Students will either spend one week in Milano with their exchange partner, then travel to various destinations within Italy, or remain in Milano with a host family for the duration of the exchange. The host family is expected to provide a safe and welcoming place for the Italian students to stay while learning about the Bay Area and improving their conversational English skills.
