Newton’s student exchange with the prestigious Jingshan School in Beijing, China is currently accepting applications for the spring semester of 2018. This is an amazing opportunity to spend four months abroad while living with a host family, attending school in China, and traveling with Newton teachers to see spectacular Chinese sights. Students who travel in the spring usually host a student in the fall prior to travel.
Applicants do not have to have any background in Chinese, although all applicants must enroll in Chinese in the fall prior to travel. More information, including information about financial aid, is available in the application which can be downloaded here.
An information session for students and parents will be held from 6-7pm on March 14 in the Film Lecture Hall at Newton North High School. Attendance at the information session is strongly encouraged for interested applicants.
For questions and further information, please contact the Program Manager Samantha Mandel.
