STUDENTS FROM BARCELONA SPEND ONE MONTH AT MONTFORT

Two exchange students from Collegi Pureza de Maria Sant Cugat in Barcelona, spent one month at Montfort living with student host families. During their visit, Edith and Laura attended classes at Montfort and experienced life as American high school students. They visited The Frick Collection in Manhattan, went to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, saw Aladdin on Broadway, viewed the stars at the Hudson River Museum Planetarium, learned to swing dance, went apple picking and so much more. Last April, Montfort sent 4 students to Sant Cugat on a cultural exchange and we plan to send another group this spring. This program has inspired life long friendships and ignited a real thirst for learning about other languages and cultures in students from both schools. We are grateful for our new friends at Collegi Pureza de Maria Sant Cugat.
