Your Exchange adventure in Chile with Nacel International:
Exchange students will enjoy the Latin American spirit of the Chilean culture. European influence is clearly felt in Chilean art, architecture and music. The geography of Chile is perhaps the most impressive: the country extends some 4300 km from the desert north to the glacial south. As a result, exchange students will discover a huge variety of landscapes and weather conditions.
Study in a private High school in Chile
General basic education is compulsory and lasts for eight years, divided into two cycles of 4 years each. Secondary education (Educación media) lasts for four years. Around 13 to 15 different subjects are offered during each school year, such as: Spanish, Math, Economics, English, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Government, Philosophy, Sports, Algebra, etc. Students choose to specialize either in humanistic-scientific education or in technical-professional education. The humanistic-scientific branch offered in the “Liceos” is a preparation for higher education. The technical-professional branch is a two year common course with two years of specialization divided into five branches: industrial, technical, agricultural, commercial and maritime. Students who successfully complete their secondary education obtain the “Licencia de Educación Media” or the title of “Técnico de Nivel Medio”.
