Lycée Largenté French Exchange
ESJ partners with Lycée Largenté in Bayonne, France to provide students with a cultural immersion experience through the school exchange program. Students from Largenté are partnered with rising ESJ freshmen through seniors for a cultural and language exchange experience that occurs. In the summer ESJ students visit Bayonne in the south of France, where they will be hosted by the family of their exchange partner for two weeks. These students will also have the opportunity to spend three nights in Paris, at the end of the program, where they will have the opportunity to visit several of the city's most important cultural sites. In the fall, 15-20 students from Largenté are hosted by ESJ students for two weeks. While in Jacksonville, these students live in the homes of their host families, take classes with their host brothers or sisters, and participate in special excursions to places of interest in and around the city.
