Spanish Exchange Trip to Zaragoza & Barcelona

I am pleased to announce that Episcopal will visit our sister school, El Colegio Inglés, in Zaragoza, Spain, for two weeks in Early June 2022. The group will also spend three nights in Barcelona. Episcopal students will host their Spanish exchange students in Jacksonville in March/April of 2022. (Exact dates will be provided later in the year). It truly is a wonderful opportunity for your child to not only travel, but also spend time with a Spanish family and learn about their way of life in this historic city. Located in the north east, Zaragoza is the fifth most populated city in Spain and is the capital of Aragón.

Mrs. Nitza Plaski and Mr. Alex Nichols, ESJ teachers, will be the trip leaders for the program in Spain this summer. You can request program applications and paperwork by contacting Mrs. Nitza Plaski at [email protected]. Application deadlines have been extended to November 30, 2021. All current ESJ students in grades 9th through 12th are invited to apply. Level of Spanish study, attendance record, teacher recommendations, and approval from the school Honor and Discipline councils will also play a part in the selection process. Students accepted into the program must be of sound character and mature enough to handle the responsibility and trust which we will place in them overseas. Feel free to reach to me if you have any questions.
