German Exchange Students Visit the Prep

Students from St. Francis Prep, Fresh Meadows, spent three weeks in Germany this past August.

Through the Prep’s German Exchange program, these students partnered with the Albert Einstein Shule in Maintal, Germany. Prep students took classes there and lived with the families of their partner students.

They also hiked along the Rhine River and traveled on excursions to the cities of Bamberg and Berlin.

The German students will be staying with their Prep host families and attending classes in Fresh Meadows from Sept. 30 to Oct. 20. This year’s visit marks the fifth time since 2004 that the German Exchange program has occurred between the partner schools.
