International experience is an important component in the education of all students. Thus, we offer a variety of age-appropriate opportunities for students to engage with students and people from other countries.

In particular, exchanges provide an intensive immersion experience, which includes living with a host family, attending school with the host student, and experiencing cultural attractions in the city or environments of the host school. Students who participate in a reciprocal exchange are guests of a family abroad and, in return, host a student when they visit Sewickley Academy.
Travel and Exchanges have included:
  • Exchanges in England, Spain, Australia
  • Experiential learning experiences in Haiti, Belize, China, Jordan, Israel, Poland, Puerto Rico, and Quebec
