            There are two types of short term students: exchange students (do not pay tuition) and short-term visitors (pay tuition). Exchange students and short term visitors are not required to have proficiency in English. 

            Exchange students have an exchange partner. They attend Summerfield and live with their partner's family, and then in turn, their partner visits the exchange students school and lives with the their family. Most of our exchanges are with Spanish and German speaking countries, and occasionally with French speaking countries. Students will not pay tuition or housing expenses, but will be responsible for their own airfare, medical expenses, and pocket money. 

            If you are interested in doing an exchange with a Summerfield student, please write a letter to the Summerfield Exchange Coordinator requesting an exchange partner. Please contact exchange@summerfieldwaldorf.org for more information.

            Short-term visitors do not have an exchange partner. Stays are usually between 3 to 10 months. These students pay school tuition and any host-family expenses. If you are interested studying without an exchange partner, please contact the Admissions Director - admissions@summerfieldwaldorf.org.
