ANC Spanish Exchange

ANC is currently planning their forth exchange with La Purísima school in Valencia, Spain during the 2018-2019 school year. See photos from the 2017 exchange here and here! ANC students and teachers will travel to Valencia over spring break 2019 to live with host families, attend classes and tour Valencia as well as spend a weekend in Barcelona. Our visit to Valencia will coincide with preparations for the region’s biggest festival of the year: Las Fallas. We will get to experience the daily fireworks, numerous parades and gigantic ninots - huge paper-mache statues that commemorate and satirize the past year. In Barcelona, we will visit the Sagrada Familia, Barri Gòtic, walk along Las Ramblas and see a Flamenco show. We will also have a quick stop in Madrid on the way to Valencia!.

The Spanish students will be coming to ANC at the end of March to stay with host families, attend ANC classes and also take day trips to surrounding points of interest.

Since this is an exchange, students who plan to travel to Spain are also expected to host. Students will be matched by the teachers and ANC students will stay with the same Spanish student he or she hosted. If there is an impediment to hosting (such as being a resident student) we can work together to find alternate arrangements for the students.

The trip is open to any ANC student, although some knowledge of Spanish language is necessary to live with a host family for a week. Spanish 1 students have gone on both of the previous exchanges with great success. Click here for itinerary and prices. Thanks to a generous grant, there is financial aid available. Please contact for more information or for registration instructions.
