Visiting School Program

We welcome students and faculty from our partner schools to immerse themselves in the academic, residential and community life of Porter’s. We aim to develop long-term, unique partnerships with each school in our network. Working collaboratively, we identify the visiting school’s learning objectives and build programming that will meet their goals.
 

Host Parent Voices

"We gained a new friend, a better cultural understanding of education in China, our student's perspective on life in China, watching our kids lovingly welcome our host student and mature through the experience and more things I cannot think of this instant. I think it also gave our daughter more perspective on what it will be like when she is on her InterMission trip should she have a homestay."
-Porter's Host Family


"It was great for us to learn about the Chinese culture. We learned so much by asking questions about what her life was like in China. Emma seemed to appreciate so many things we take for granted. She loved the trees and the blue sky and the variety of food. It was wonderful for us all to see her perspective."
