Latin Exchange

About the Latin Exchange

Since 2013 we have conducted an exchange with Liceo Classico e Linguistico Statale Aristofane, a school of approximately 1,100 students and 97 teachers located in Rome, Italy. This exchange is scheduled every other year, but is completed in a single year. Student participants host an Italian student for two weeks in October and stay with that same student in Rome the following April. Students are expected to be in contact with their Italian partner throughout the year and, in partnership, to complete research and a presentation.


Applicants must be enrolled in a Latin I or higher when applying and must be enrolled in Latin for the following year.

Current Status

The Latin Exchange for the 2020-2021 school year has been postponed. We will be monitoring the situation in Italy in hopes of traveling in the 2021-2022 school year.

Applications for the Latin Exchange are now available. The next Latin Exchange will take place in the 2020-2021 school year. Students will be hosting in the Fall of 2020, and traveling to Italy in the Spring of 2021.
