Stowe participates in a School Choice agreeement with 17 other schools in the Winooski Valley Region Public School Choice Program. In this program students may apply to go, at no cost, to a high school other than the one in their own school district. Students are chosen by lottery one time per year in April from all the applicants from each school district based on the number of open slots. Parents/guardians are responsible for their own transportation.
A student exchange program is a program in which a student, typically in secondary or higher education, chooses to live in a foreign country to learn, among other things, language and culture. These programs are called "exchanges" because originally the goal was an exchange of students between different countries. Students from other countries may also live with a host family, who are usually unpaid volunteers. Host families are vetted by the organization coordinating the program. Stowe has worked primarily with AFS Intercultural Programs. However, there are many organizations that sponsor exchange programs, including Youth for Understanding, Program Academic Exchange PAX and Education First.
This program provides intensive, hands-on educational opportunities to highly motivated high school students on Vermont college campuses during the summer.
