Student Exchange


After our first GLS Ottawa student exchange to Berlin and a second one to Wiesbaden, the students from Wiesbaden came to Ottawa in 2017. We received a lot of positive feedback from parents and students in our community and many of you asked us about the next opportunity for children at GLS to participate.

We are planning to continue our GLS exchange program with the Elly-Heuss-Gymnasium. Usually, the students will stay with a guest family and will participate fully in the classroom and the regular school schedule. In addition, a GLS teacher and parent volunteers who are accompanying the group to Germany, will organize activities and a cultural program in and around town. In return, we host the German students  in Ottawa a few months later.

The exchange program is about 14 days long and the dates will cover one of Ontario’s school breaks.

We are inviting GLS students in grade 7, 8 and 9 (age 12-15) to apply for the program.

The cost of the program is around $1,800 (based on last year). The price usually includes the return flight to Frankfurt, train tickets to Wiesbaden, all fees for activities, bus tours, etc. as well as snacks and meals outside the guest family.
