Global Education
Exchanges
Anually, Bishop’s students have the opportunity to study abroad in Spain as part of the exchange program with our two partner schools, Colegio Puertosol in Málaga and Ágora International School in Sant Cugat del Valles (alternating each year). On their two-week trip, students are immersed in the culture, attending school with their hosts, exploring historical sites, eating local cuisine and, of course, practicing their Spanish.

If you are interested in learning more about the Spanish exchange program, please contact Ms. Mary Jane Sutherland.
