Student Exchange Programs

Nina Koepplinger, 16, of Vienna, Austria, wanted to see how Americans really live, compared to those in movies and TV shows.“I wanted to speak English fluently,” said Nina, who arrived in the United States last month to spend a semester at Pine-Richland High School.Until January, Nina is living with a Pine family selected through AFS Intercultural Programs.The nonprofit group also arranged for Nicole Schlotterbeck, 17, of Pine — a senior at Pine-Richland High School — to spend six weeks with a family in Japan.Students and parents can learn more about such travel and study opportunities at AFS Information Night from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Oct. 17 in the library of Pine-Richland High School.“AFS has been the leading international high school student exchange program in the United States for 60 years,” said Lauren Super, co-sponsor of the school’s Global Relations Club.Twenty-eight of the school’s students have traveled abroad through AFS Intercultural Programs, according to Super.Ninety students from other countries also have lived with local families while attending Pine-Richland High School.
