French Exchange Students Visit Seven Hills

Upper School students hosted 26 students and three teachers from France on Oct. 12-23 as part of a cultural exchange partnership with Institution Croix Blanche, a school located in the northern part of the French city, Lille. Our visitors from France joined the Seven Hills community and were immersed in its culture and routine. Exchange students attended classes across disciplines with their host students, experiencing the day-to-day life of a Stinger. Exchange students also took day trips. They visited the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in downtown Cincinnati and, later in the week, they went to Matthew 25: Ministries. As part of the exchange, Seven Hills will travel to Lille in spring and stay with their students, allowing them to learn more about and live French culture. Upper School French teacher Ann Griep said the French exchange is truly a great opportunity for students from Cincinnati and France.
