Hanoi Academy in Vietnam

Deadline: March 22, 2019

We are planning a summer exchange with Hanoi Academy in 2019!

Hanoi Academy is an international bilingual school located in the vibrant ancient city of Hanoi. Hanoi is also a booming city with exciting developments. You can learn more about the school here:

The Vietnamese students will come for two weeks of summer camps: Model UN Workshop (open to you as well!) from July 15 - 19, and Forensic Science from July 22 - 26. They will stay with your family during their visit at GC. You will then follow them back to Hanoi to perform community service at Volunteers for Peace Vietnam ( (July 26 - August 9). So you actually will not spend much time inside the school, instead, you will be able to help the poor and disadvantaged people in Vietnam. The hours will go toward the required community service at GC.

You will be charged about $1500 which includes international flight, travel insurance and some administrative tasks. Be sure to check with your family calendar before you apply. The deadline is March 22, 2019. Any questions, please contact Ms. Mary Shawhan at
