Exchange Program

St. Hilda's School Australia Exchange

Although exchange programs have existed at various times throughout Baylor’s history, the current program is headed by social studies instructor Natalie Rodriguez-Nelson.   The program allows Baylor students the opportunity to participate in a one-on-one cultural exchange with a student from partner schools located in six countries around the world.  They attend classes and live with host families abroad the summer between their sophomore and junior years and then host their partner at Baylor during their senior year.  "Very few high schools offer one-to-one exchanges where students benefit from the experience of traveling and hosting.  It's a unique program in the region," said Rodriguez.

"Baylor's student exchange program allowed me to access a different part of myself that I didn’t even know was there, a new level of independence, as I learned how to navigate through completely new surroundings by myself. The program, through interactions with people, different cultures, and geography, transformed us into more unique, but global-minded individuals."Ridley Browder
