French Exchange

About the French Exchange

This is the 24th year of the exchange with Collège LeBocage, a school of approximately 600 students and 80 teachers located in Dinard, France. Students and teachers from the school in Dinard visit us in March. As hosts, our students will be responsible for a French student and have the opportunity to create a lasting international friendship. Our students then travel to France in April and stay with families in Dinard. While in France, there will be many exciting excursions for us such as a stay in Paris, visiting the Normandy beaches, visiting Mont Saint Michel, and the medieval cities of Saint Malo and Dinan. In addition, there will be plenty of opportunities to visit classes.


Students must be enrolled in French III or higher when they apply, or have completed all of the French offerings at GHS.
