Barcelona Exchange

Enjoy Barcelona and her unique Catalan traditions.

Walsh Jesuit has been involved in a reciprocal exchange with the Casp Jesuit High School in Barcelona for 23 years.  Students have an opportunity to travel to Barcelona and experience the vibrant Catalan culture that shapes this city.  The group will depart on March 24 or 25th and return on April 7 or 8th.  Your group leader has given us flexibility with departure/return dates to ensure that we remain the travel budget of $2000-$2200.  You will be in Barcelona during Holy Week and the first week of Easter.  You will experience rich local traditions that surround this festive season.

 

Homestay

A large portion of the Barcelona Exchange program is the homestay.  Student placements are organized by your school faculty directly with the Casp school.  Students who hosted in the autumn of 2017 are going to be “reunited” with their host brother or sister.  Many activities will be planned by your host families.  The first week of the exchange is Holy Week and there will be no classes at the Casp school.  Many students in previous years have been invited to travel with their host family to the beach or their holiday homes in mountains outside of Barcelona.  Over the past decade this has been an amazing time for students and their host families to explore and participate in the many religious and/or cultural events that take place in Barcelona at this time.

 

Tour Cost

The cost of the program will be somewhere ranging from $2000-$2200 including airfare, medical insurance, transfers, day tour/s, administrative fees, etc.  If there is a significantly cheaper option to leave from another major airport near Cleveland, Ohio we will also present this option to the group.
