    Please inquire here if you have questions about the program fee, scholarships, or fundraising for your program.

  • Academic Info

    What to know about attending school in Argentina:

    • The Argentine school year starts in March and finishes in December.
    • Students have a 3-month summer vacation, starting in December and in July students have 15 days of winter vacation.
    • Classes are taught in Spanish from Monday through Friday, 7:15AM -1PM. Some days students may have class in the afternoons.
    • Each class is about 45 minutes and modules are 1.5 hours, with a recess of 15 minutes after each module.
    • You will have 3 obligatory subjects, history, language (typically English), and geography. Your schedule may be a bit different depending on the school.

    Before You Go Abroad

    You should meet with your US high school before you leave and share the general curriculum guidelines of your host country with your guidance counselor and/or teachers. Please consult with them about the credits they will potentially grant you for the classes you take while abroad.

    Because the curriculum will vary by country, it is important that you arrange the required classes required for your graduation, such as U.S. History, before or after your time abroad. There are no guarantees that you can take certain classes at your host school.

    Greenheart Travel will be able to provide information about the general curriculum for your age level in your host country; however, in most cases, you will not be able to sign up for specific courses until AFTER you have arrived in your host country.

    Access your High School Curriculum Guidelines for Argentina here!

    Once You’re Abroad

    Please keep in mind that the grading system in other countries is different than the US. Most host schools will not grant grades or transcripts as it is too difficult to evaluate your work due to the language barrier. If your host school is able to award you grades, they won’t be an exact match to what you would get in the US.

    Throughout the school year, there are optional trips you can join to see more of Argentina. The price of these excursions is not included in the price of the program and determined about a month prior to the trip. An exchange student may not miss school for travel reasons unless the trip is organized by the school or program.

    Potential Travel Options:

    • Trip to the Iguazu Falls – October
    • Trip to Buenos Aires – December
    • Trip to Ushuaia – Summer
    • Trip to Bariloche – Summer
    • Trip to the Northwest – April

    Social life is very important to Argentines, especially in smaller communities. People come together to drink mate (typical South American tea), to talk about current events, and to watch soccer.  Argentina offers you the opportunity to participate in many different activities. In your free time, you can play soccer, rugby, basketball, go swimming, take dance classes, and more! If athletics do not interest you, you can participate in theater classes, tango classes, music schools, and a wide variety of youth organizations and cultural activities. Getting involved is the best way to meet people and make friends!

  • Eligibility

    In researching a study abroad program, you have already shown you are a leader and open-minded in your academic pursuits. You should also:

    • Be between 15 and 18 years of age (at the time of travel)
    • Be from the United States or Canada
    • Possess a high school cumulative GPA of at least 2.75/4.0
    • Be in great mental* and physical health
    • Have a genuine interest in becoming a part of your host family and community
    • Have at least 2 years of Spanish language instruction

    *What does it mean to be in good mental health?

    Moving to a new culture and staying in unfamiliar surroundings without your normal support structure can be very stressful, even to a well-adjusted student. Sending a student with pre-existing conditions on a long-term exchange program could exacerbate whatever challenges the student was previously facing. In order to ensure the safety of our participants, we must be rigorous in our pre-screening of all high school abroad applicants.

    Therefore, we may not be able to accept students who have struggled with any kind of mental illness within the last 2 years and/or are reliant on medication to address their existing mental health condition. Each student will be addressed on a case by case basis.

    These include, but are not limited to:

    • Depression
    • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
    • Debilitating anxiety
    • Eating disorders

    If the student’s mental health issue has been managed (post-medication) for over 2 years, we will ask for a note from his/her relevant practitioner (psychologist, therapist, psychiatrist, etc) as part of the application process.

  • Host Families

    The best way to learn about a new culture and language is to be fully immersed in it which is why all Greenheart Travel high school abroad students live with host families. All our host families are volunteers and will treat you as a member of their family.

    Prospective host families undergo a rigorous screening process. Participants can rest assured that only suitable host families will be selected. In fact, many of our current host families have hosted students in the past, showing what an impactful experience it was.

    In order to qualify as a host family, the prospective hosts must:

    • Successfully pass a criminal background check
    • Undergo and pass an in-person interview with program staff
    • Agree to and pass a home inspection

    We will connect you with your host family prior to your arrival in your host country. By e-mailing and speaking with them before arriving, it will help break the ice when you finally meet in person. It will also show that you are as excited to live with them as they are to host you!

    Host families have many reasons why they want to welcome you! Our host families are volunteers, meaning they don’t receive compensation for housing and feeding students during their program. Many host families love the experience of cultural exchange – they learn just as much about your country as you do theirs. Many are also former exchange students and want to return the favor, or they have children who have gone or will go to study in the U.S. Having an exchange student exposes their children to new languages and cultures.

  • Orientation

    All participants will get to participate in a 4-day orientation upon arrival in Rosario. You’ll have the opportunity to meet many other new like-minded and adventurous students who have also just arrived! By the end, you’ll have new friends scattered around the entire country. Orientation includes important activities and classes on what to expect on your program, language, and local culture. The accommodation will be at a hostel. All meals are included during the orientation period.

    Example Itinerary:

    Subject to change.

    Thursday – Welcome to Argentina! 

    On Wednesday you will arrive at the Rosario Airport and the High School Argentina team will greet you there! Then the staff will bring you to the hotel you’ll be staying at. Up first – everyone should make sure to contact their families back home and check in – let them know you made it! After lunch, we’ll visit El Circulo Theater & Plataforma Lavarden. Dinner will be at the hotel for an early night, most of you might be a little jet lagged.

    Friday – Spanish, Logistics, and Exploring the City!

    After breakfast, we’ll start your Spanish lessons! After lunch we’ll visit some of the tourist hot spots: 5 de Mayo Square, Cathedral, downtown & Monumento a la Bandera.

    That afternoon we’ll cover things like expectations, Argentine culture, school life, host family etiquette, and more!

    Saturday – Riverside Walk and More Workshops.

    Friday morning we’ll have some more Spanish classes to get you ready for your program. Then, we’ll take a riverside walk & visit a handcrafts market. After that, we’ll continue with orientation activities and workshops. We’ll have dinner at a restaurant in Rosario before heading back to the hotel for the night.

    Saturday – Placement Test and Finally – Placements!

    In the morning, we’ll start our day with your Spanish placement test! This will help determine your language proficiency.

    After lunch, you’ll meet your host family! This is such a great part of the week as now the adventure really starts and all of the students will go to their new Argentine home with their new family!

    Orientation fun!

  • Activities & Excursions

    Additional School Trips

    At the end of the school year, each class organizes an excursion to an important place in Argentina. The price of these excursions is not included in the price of the program but usually, these excursions, offered to students by the school, are not very expensive. Your travel plans must coincide with school holidays. Under no circumstances may any exchange student miss school for travel reasons, except for the trips organized by the program. Students that wish to travel alone or with friends need authorization from their parents.

  • Summer Study Abroad

    Can’t miss part of your semester or a full academic year? No te preocupes! (Psst – that means “don’t worry”)

    One of the great things about Argentina being on another hemisphere is that during North American summers, Argentine schools are still in session! You can still attend a local high school and live with a local host family and get the full exchange experience without missing your school year.

    In addition to our traditional academic year and semester program, we also offer a short-term summer program with all of the same basic program details, just short term (1 month or 2 months!).  If you only have the summer to spend away, this is a perfect way to get abroad for that time! This is geared towards students who have commitments that do not allow them to commit to a full semester or year in Argentina but want to travel during their summer vacation.

  • Gap Year Option

    Our high school in Argentina program also offers a unique opportunity for students who have already graduated to attend university abroad after a semester in Argentina. Contact us for more information on this gap year option and how to get started.

    Overview of the Gap Year Option:

    • The student must have finished high school in his/her home country and be at least 18 and 9 months years old.
    • The student must successfully study and complete his/her first semester in an Argentinean high school.
    • The student must do special work in his/her school: for example give a talk about his/her home country’s culture or history, etc.
    • The student must volunteer in the community: for example, participate in a cultural festival, participate in a play, etc.
    • Although universities are usually open to foreign students, we cannot guarantee that there will be a place for the student in the course he/she chooses. It is, therefore, possible that the exchange student will not be able to follow the courses he/she likes best and will have to consider other alternatives.

    Please contact us here for more information and an outline of the full eligibility and study abroad requirements for this gap year opportunity. 

  • FAQs

    I am a parent with questions, where do I go?

    Please head to our Parent Handbook page. You’re also welcome to set up a time to chat with us about your child’s program abroad here. We’re happy to chat with you about this big decision!

    I identify as LGBTQ+. How will I be supported?

    Greenheart Travel welcomes travelers identifying as LGTBQ+, and is committed to helping you find the best program for you. We can provide information on the cultural norms of our destination countries and are prepared to advise you on the best programs based on your needs and interests. 

    Please read more here.

    When should I apply?

    We recommend you apply a minimum of 6 months prior to your desired semester.

    The sooner you can apply the better, as acceptance, gathering documents, etc. can take a long time. Read more about why applying early is a good idea.

    Our final deadlines for fall start dates are March 15, and September 15 for spring departures.

    I missed the deadline to apply! Is there any way I can go?

    It’s highly recommended you apply as early as possible. We set the deadlines for a reason and it can be very difficult to facilitate an exchange program at the last minute.

    However, on a case-by-case basis we can take late applicants for the High School in France program. You will, however, be charged a non-negotiable $450 late application fee for any applications received after March 15 for fall dates, and September 15 for spring departures.

    You must also be flexible when it comes to host family placement, which could come very last minute if you apply late. We also ask late applicants to be aware there is a lot of paperwork to submit and you will need to be on top of submission if you submit a late application.

    Can I choose where I will be placed with my host family?

    No. You must be flexible about where you are placed within Argentina. We make it a priority to place students with host families that closely match your interests and personality. For this reason, we work first to find a suitable family rather than a destination preference. We can never guarantee placements in any specific city or region, and we match based on compatibility with the host family.

    I know a family in my program country that would like to host me. Is this possible?

    This is possible as long as we have a support network in the family’s host community and there is an available nearby host school.

    What if I don’t like my host family? Can I request a new one?

    No. We do not change host families based on preferences or location. However, if issues arise once you are on the program, we will handle them on a case-by-case basis and may make changes if necessary.

    Will I be placed in a city like Buenos Aires?

    It is very unlikely you will be placed in a major city. A majority of our families live in small to medium-sized towns outside of major cities, and it is important you be open-minded.

    Will I have a host sibling my age?

    There is no guarantee that you will have a host sibling your age. Your host family may have young children, teenage children, or grown children who no longer live at home. Regardless of the age of your host siblings, they’ll be excited to welcome into the family!

    Depending on your host family,  you may be expected to share a room with a host sibling of the same gender.

    Are flights included?

    Round trip airfare from New York to Rosario is included in the cost of the program. If New York is not convenient for you and you wish to book flights on your own we will deduct the flight from your total fee.

    Will someone pick me up at the airport?

    Yes! Our in-country partner staff will be eagerly waiting for you when you arrive! They’ll then take you to the on-site arrival orientation site.

    After orientation, most students will take a train and their host family will pick them up from the station in their new host town.

    Will anyone at my school speak English?

    It’s possible that teachers and students at your school will speak English. However, remember that you’re there to learn Spanish!

    All classes will be taught in Spanish as this is a full immersion program.

    Will I get to travel?

    You are not permitted to travel on your own during the program. There will be opportunities to travel through the program and/or through your school, but you are must be accompanied by an approved chaperone to travel.

    Do I need vaccines?

    We follow the CDC’s guidelines for travelers to France: https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/destinations/traveler/none/argentina

    You are required to submit a record of immunizations during the application process.

    What is the insurance?

    Comprehensive medical and accident insurance will be included in the cost of your program. This will cover you for most medical expenses you might incur, like prescriptions, ER visits, doctor visits, dental accidents, and hospitalizations.

    What happens if I get sick or have an emergency?

    If you get sick, your host family or local coordinator will help you go to the doctor.

    If you have an emergency on program, we have a 24/7 emergency number you can call. Our in-country partner staff and your host family will be there to assist you. Greenheart will be in touch with your parents regarding your emergency.

    What visa do I get and how do I apply?

    All students will be required to obtain a student visa to Argentina, regardless of their program length. It is the students’ responsibility to apply for this visa, but Greenheart will provide you guidance and the proper documents you’ll need to apply with your local consulate or with the embassy.

    Do you offer any scholarships, financial aid, or special discounts?

    Yes. Every year we offer various scholarships for select high school program destinations. There are two Early Bird Deadline discounts offered each year as well. If you have hosted a student for Greenheart Exchange, you are also eligible for a Greenheart Host Family discount.

    Do I need to be fluent in Spanish?

    No. There are language requirements for this program – you must have at least 2 years of Spanish language instruction. However, you are not expected to be fluent in Spanish.

    One of the main goals of studying abroad is to become fluent in another language while living overseas. The host family and school will not expect you to be fluent when you first arrive and will help you improve your language skills. As long as you try your best, you’ll pick up the language sooner than you might think!

    Can I come home to visit or can my parents visit while I'm abroad?

    No. Visits are not allowed during the high school program. If your family wishes to visit, they should plan to meet you after your program is completed. In this instance, Greenheart Travel’s National office and international partner office should be informed of your family’s plans.

    Can friends study abroad together?

    Our programs are based on a full, cultural immersion experience so friends are not allowed to study abroad together in the same host town. You’re welcome to both go to France at the same time but you would not be placed together. Don’t worry though; making friends in your new host town will happen quickly!

    My school requires service learning in order to graduate. How will I do that abroad?

    Greenheart Travel is proud to offer the Greenheart Club for all of our students. The Greenheart Club challenges our participants to pursue a deeper level of immersion through volunteerism. As a member of the Greenheart Club, you will receive guidance in strategizing creative ways to give back to your community, have access to tools for tracking your impact and receive incentives for your efforts as a global leader. This is a great chance for you to get to know the local community outside of the classroom while you study abroad.

    Can I take the SATs while abroad?

    You will not be able to take the SATs while abroad.  We highly recommend taking the SATs prior to or after the program.

    I have already graduated, can I still go?

    Yes. On a case by case basis, we can accept already graduated students for High School programs in Argentina, Austria, Belgium, France, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, and England.

    Can I speak to current high school students or alumni?

    Yes! Check out our blog or you can join our exclusive teen programs Facebook group to talk to current and past students.

    We also have a list of mentors (teens and parents) that are past participants open to chatting about their experience with potential new participants. Please inquire here if you want to be put in touch with a mentor.
