Cannon School’s Exchange Program with the Saint-Louis Institute in France

June 19, 2015


In June 2016, Cannon School students will have the opportunity to visit London, Paris, and La Rochelle, south of Normandy for two weeks. They will visit famous sites in London, take the Eurotrain under the English Channel tunnel, visit monuments and museums in Paris, and participate in a home stay at a private school in La Rochelle. WorldStrides will be handling the tour logistics and the Institute will host and entertain our students while visiting their campus. The theme of this visit will be the teaching of science in a European school. The cost is estimated at $4,500. For more information, please consult this itinerary overview.

Students from the Saint-Louis Institute are planning to visit Cannon School in March or April 2016. We will be looking for families to host French students for a week stay. Please contact Dr. Simard-Newman for any information on the trip or hosting a student. She will organize an informational meeting in the fall.
