Its goal: to provide an overview (with details!) of what makes Chief Sealth an International High School.
There are many opportunities for Chief Sealth International students to travel the world. Applications are already past due for Global Visionaries (Guatemala), One World Now! (Morocco), NSLI-Y (fully funded language programs in several countries), and the CSIHS China Exchange Program. But there are more opportunities on the horizon.
Mr. Hansell has formed a partnership with the YMCA’s Global Teens program to take students to our sister city of Kobe, Japan, and to Hiroshima to study worldwide peace. We are currently studying immigration and multiculturalism as a group once a week, and will travel to Japan in late July. This program will be available every other year.
Travel to Veracruz Mexico with Many Voices One Tribe. During this five week program, participants will engage in critical discussions, cross cultural competency building, Spanish language immersion, writing workshops, and digital media training. This program is a point of entry not only into the unique mix of cultures that create Mexican identity, but into a broader conversation about social identity. Many Voices One Tribe will accept 16 young writers of color between the ages of 15-18. Applications have been reopened.
ASSE International Student Exchange Programs (ASSE) is seeking local host families for international high school boys and girls. These students are 15 to 18 years of age, and are coming to this area for the upcoming high school year or semester. The exchange students arrive from their home country shortly before school begins and return at the end of the school year or semester.
