Costa Rica - Southington Exchange Program

An exchange program between Southington High School and San Agustín Colegio Bilingüe began this past winter, when SHS welcomed a group of 16 students and 2 chaperones from Palmares, Costa Rica, to spend 2 weeks in CT and visit local towns and cities, shadow their host siblings at SHS and adapt to the American way of life. The visit marked the first half of a two-part exchange that will be continued in June/July 2017 when the SHS students and their chaperones, Teresa Curtis and Chris Carvalho, will visit Costa Rica for 2 weeks. The exchange is an initiative to encourage inter-cultural relations as well as promote the importance of learning another language.
