Italian high school program White Christams 6 week program is available end November or Semester and year abroad program.  High schools runs from mid-September to mid-June. Classes are typically held in mornings only, from 8 am to 1–2 pm, six days a week (from Monday through Saturday).

Italian schools usually don’t organize afternoon sport activities, so students are expected to spend part of the afternoon doing their homework and self-study: social life begins around 6 pm and is mainly concentrated on the weekend. There are no school uniforms. There is generally less familiarity
between teachers and students in Italian schools compared to schools in many other countries.

Students on a Cultural Exchange are expected to show an interest in all subjects, study diligently, complete their assignments, and make an effort to speak Italian. Students on a Cultural Exchange are expected to respect the teachers, the school rules and the class- mates. Before the student’s departure, the school usually gives them a certificate of attendance.


The student must be able to help out in the host family’s home like all other family members. Exchange students should keep their rooms tidy, help at dinnertime and share family tasks like taking care of pets and younger siblings.

Italian families (especially host mothers) are usually very protective towards their children. They like to know as much as possible about their lives, and they really worry about their problems and immediately try to solve them.

Communication is essential to a good host family/ student relationship, Italian people are often outgoing and they like spending time together. Whether discussing a discovery about cultural differences, a problem, or a positive event of the day, the bonds of mutual trust and affection strengthen when the student communicates openly and freely with the family. With communication and time, the student truly becomes a “member of the family.” The family usually expects the student to speak his/ her native language from time to time (especially if it is English),while learning Italian, in order to help the host family improve their own foreign language skills.

The host family will be glad to share activities, visits and weekend excursions with students,

and students are expected to show interest and enthusiasm in return.This makes for a true

international exchange!
