The Student Exchange Program is an opportunity awarded to Corpus Christi high school sophomores and juniors who have outstanding academic and leadership performance; a good understanding of citizenship and what it means to be a city ambassador; and a keen interest in learning about the world outside of the United States. The students will spend several weeks with a host student and family. At the end of their stay, they will return with their host student to spend another couple of educational and fun-filled weeks in Corpus Christi.
