International Students & Exchange

The PERCEVAL Waldorf High School offers an international ex-change program in grades 10 to countries across all continents. Exposure to a different culture is invaluable for adolescents and provides an excellent opportunity to strengthen a student’s foreign language skills.

Our students have completed exchanges with Waldorf schools in Germany, Switzerland, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, to name a few locations.

Participants from each country experience school and family environments that reflect Waldorf values and educational goals. An exchange allows a student the opportunity to cultivate new levels of cultural understanding and the courage to work through challenges in a safe context. Students return with a broader view of the world, and a deeper appreciation of home and family and our graduates reflect on this enriching program with gratitude and pride.

Due to the demands of the Waldorf curriculum, the program is designed for a period of one to three months.

Please note: Our school year runs from the beginning of September to the beginning of July. We do not currently offer exchange opportunities for students in Grades 9, 11 or 12.

Short Term visitors (FLE)

If we are not able to confirm an exchange for you, but you would like to come as a short-term Visitor to the high school, we very much welcome visiting students from other Rudolf Steiner/Waldorf schools abroad.

During this stay you will join class 10 or 11 and participate with their round of learning and varied curriculum.

In classes 11 we do not accept visiting students in the Spring/Summer Term (March – June), because our own students sit public examinations and their timetables are disrupted.

Following details of the registration process:

  • You must be currently enrolled in a Waldorf School
  • You must have an intermediate level of fluency in French (English, Spanish and German are our taught foreign languages).
  • Your academic record must be currently in good standing.

Policy on Non-Discrimination

PERCEVAL Waldorf School does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, ethnic background, or national origin in ad-mission of students, in financial assistance, or in any program of-fered.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion As a Waldorf community and school, we hold the dignity of life and the human being at the centre of our work. We stand in solidarity against racism and the systems of oppression that allow it to per-sist. We are committed to understanding our role in perpetuating and benefiting from those systems and taking action to deconstruct them.

It is our responsibility to bear witness to what is happening in the world, to elevate the voices of marginalized people, to change the course of inequities, and to take an active role in breaking down structural prejudice in all forms where it exists particularly in Waldorf education. We are listening, and we are learning.
