Dominican Republic Exchange Program
In the fall of 2012, St. George’s School of Montreal introduced a new linguistic and cultural exchange program with Americas Bilingual School (ABC School) in the Dominican Republic. ABC is one of the top bilingual private institutions in the Dominican Republic and is an associate member of the Canadian Association of Independent School (CAIS).
This partnership was developed so that students from both ABC School and St. George’s can further develop their English, French and Spanish language skills by attending school and living with a local family.
Last October, seven ABC School students, accompanied by a teacher, arrived at St. George’s for four weeks and attended classes and familiarized themselves with our Quebec / Canadian culture. In turn, three St. George’s students and one school chaperone went to ABC School in March 2013 and attended various classes with the Dominican students, received special instruction in Spanish from one of ABC’s Spanish teachers and used independent study time to work on their St. George’s curriculum.
