(Grade 6 to 12)
Each year, Hawthorn welcomes international students into our school, larger groups come from Fomento schools in Spain and Aspaen Gimnasio Iragua in Bogota, Colombia. The students live with a host family and attend Hawthorn for a full immersion experience that could be 3, 4 or 6 months, or a full academic year.
Fomento and Iragua Schools have an educational philosophy similar to Hawthorn’s, combining academic excellence, character development, and faith education.
Likewise we offer our students a Spanish Exchange, a great opportunity for Hawthorn girls to discover all that Spain has to offer: whether it’s lying on the beach in Santander, enjoying Picasso’s paintings in Barcelona, or even catching the running of the bulls in Pamplona!
Participating students live with a local family and attend a FOMENTO school.
