Mount Vernon Presbyterian School provides our students, who have a passion for learning world languages, the opportunity to participate in a cultural exchange in Seville, Spain or Thionville, France. Selected applicants will travel for four to five weeks during the spring semester, engage in a new culture while living with a host family, immerse in the designated language through daily classes, and explore nearby cities. In addition, Mount Vernon students will welcome their exchange peers to live life here in Atlanta. French students will attend MVPS in the fall, while Spanish exchanges will attend classes for five subsequent weeks in late spring.
