Russian Summer Exchange
Juniors studying Russian travel to St. Petersburg, Russia over the summer to participate in a 2.5 week language immersion program at St. Petersburg Gimnaziya #209, our partners for the last 12 years of this program. Students live with host families, attend classes daily, conduct a service project, and participate in a cultural program which includes after school excursions to museums and places of cultural significance as well as a 3-day visit to Moscow. This program carries SLUH academic credit and has been in existence since 1999.
Take a moment to read through some of the reflections of recent program participants below.
