Colombian Exchange Program

Saint Patrick partners with The Rochester School in Bogotá, Colombia in a student-exchange program for middle school students. The Rochester School, like Saint Patrick, is an independent Catholic School and a Glasser Quality School.

Saint Patrick Catholic School is the only school in the region offering an extended language and cultural immersion program for Middle School students. Exchange students from Bogotá stay two months, enrolling in our rigorous curriculum, and earning transferable credits for their school. Although Spanish is their native language, these Colombian students have studied English extensively in their bilingual school. Students are fully immersed in the English language and American culture for a more authentic exchange than is readily available for this age group.
