Faculty Exchange

Applications for 2019 will open in fall 2018

Much like their students, educators never stop learning. At WLSA, we strive to encourage and provide resources for educational professionals to grow through cultural experiences. In 2018, with our associate, The Lovett School, we hosted a two-week faculty exchange.

The Lovett School welcomed educators to their campus in Atlanta, Georgia. Faculty guests lived with host families, experienced everyday life at Lovett, and explored Atlanta through cultural excursions.

We will be accepting applications for our next faculty exchange in the fall of 2018 from all educators teaching kindergarten through grade 12.
