Students improve their knowledge of the Italian culture and language through active participation in family, school and community life. The program gives students an opportunity to spend a certain period of time studying at an Italian high school and living with an Italian volunteer family. Some schools organize extra-curricular activities on afternoons. Students are placed in any region of Italy according to availability. Note that an orientation, cultural and language course is offered on arrival in September. Meetings with other exchange students may be organized during the school year. All exchange students are required to attend 16 hours of Italian courses at the beginning of the school year: two hours a week, during eight weeks.
The “scuola superiore” (high school) welcomes students from ages 14 to 19. Italian students begin this school after attending five years of “scuola elementare” (elementary school) and three years of “scuola media” (junior high school). Subjects offered depend on the type of school: Classical, Scientific, Fine Arts, Teacher Training, Artistic, Technical or Professional school. The schedule generally goes from 8:00 am to 1:00-2:00 pm. Some schools offer extra-curricular activities in the afternoon (sports, theatre, and so on). Students often organize these activities themselves if they are not organized by the school. Students are offered a short term homestay and school integration program (from 4 to 12 weeks). Graduation is not possible.
