Student exchange in the South of Spain

Your High School exchange in Andalusia with Nacel.
Exchange students are hosted by a Spanish host family living in Andalusia and attend regular classes in a local public, concertado, or private High School. There are no classes on afternoons during the high school program in Spain; some Spanish high schools offer optional workshops/extra-curricular activities in the afternoon, which may be at an extra cost. Popular sports are Football, Basketball, and Nautical sports in some schools. Students attend 10-12 subjects a week. 10th grade offers a good number of mandatory subjects, while 11th and 12th grade offer students to specialize in Science, Social Science, or Humanities (as well as Arts in some schools). 

Andalusia is a region full of history and culture: immerse yourself in a true Spanish and Arabic history! The region also offers students the opportunity to enjoy wonderful landscapes: trek in the mountains in the afternoon and swim in the Mediterranean Sea in the afternoon! You will no doubt enjoy this Mediterranean climate allowing you to spend long days outdoors! 

Please note that placements may also be arranged in other locations in Spain. Inquire!

Attend public or private high schools in Spain

The Spanish educational system is divided into 3 stages: elementary education (from 6 to 12 Y.O.), secondary education (from 12 to 16 Y.O.), and the baccalaureate degree (from 16 to 18 Y.O.). The main subjects of secondary education are mandatory and cannot be chosen: Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, Physical Education, Plastic and Visual Education, Spanish and Literature, Foreign Language (English), Mathematics, Music, and Technology.

During the 2 years of the Bachillerato, students should take at least Physical Education, Philosophy, Spanish and Literature, Foreign Language and History. There are 3 more subjects to study, depending on the Spanish high school's offer: Technical Drawing, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Latin, Greek, etc. Each school also offers some optional subjects that may be chosen depending on the interest of the student. The grades and subjects chosen depend on availability at school and on the Principal's decision.

Study abroad in Spain

Spanish host families are warm, open, and outgoing. They enjoy the opportunity to share their culture, country, and way of life with a young person from another country. Host families receive a small stipend to help them cover hosting costs. They open you to their home and family and hope to build strong friendships and exchange great moments with you. 

Program Highlights

  • Depending on the grade, general classes in Maths, Sciences, Spanish Literature & History & Geography, etc.;
  • Public schools promote a good foundation of knowledge but also foster other skills such as presentation skills, learning independently, and other soft skills;
  • Private schools strive for academic excellence and foster a balanced growth for their students, with all sorts of sports, art forms, and sometimes quite unique skills learning activities;
  • Meet the local teenagers, and make friends with typical Spanish kids.

High School Exchange in Andalusia (Select program) : Testimonials

My family is great. I really like it here! In my classes, it is still difficult to understand however, the tutor is great. she helps me a lot with my homework because it is hard to read in subjects like anotomía and filosofía and when I don’t have homework, she helps me with Spanish. As for my spanish, I would'nt say that it is that good yet but it has improved since I have got here… Love, Hannah


After only 3-4 days of adjustment, Cameron has been doing very well. The entire process of arriving and having someone meet him in Seville and drive him to Cadiz was fantastic and much appreciated. The first few days was by Cameron’s own admission were difficult. Adjusting to a new culture, new language and maybe second guessing the decision - I am sure is all very normal and something you see regularly. I can’t say how important it was that Alejandro his local coordinator was there to assist, advise and guide.

Cameron’s host family has been fantastic. I am so pleased that he is with such an engaging and loving family. His host mom sends me pictures and videos occasionally and I really enjoy and appreciate it!  He is becoming quite good friends with his host brother that is now in college in Seville.

It took only a few days after arrival for Cameron to become actively involved in all that Cadiz, his family, school and Alejandro had to offer. Alejandro has helped Cameron with his school and classes, getting him  involved with surfing, arranging the Spanish classes and tutoring and overall being a fantastic mentor and friend. He has also kept me informed which has been nice as well.

For Cameron, it has been Alejandro that has been instrumental in making the program a success so far.

Cameron is now taking an intense Spanish course and we both feel the timing of this class will be perfect. We feel that he is making good progress.

I am happy to say that Cameron is really having a great time. He has met friends, learning a new language, become part of a loving family and is taking full  advantage of this amazing opportunity.  I am very pleased with everything Nacel and your team has done to get him to this great place.

I will keep you posted throughout the year.  Please let me know if you have any parents that need a reference or even advice during the preparation and deciding process of doing the Nacel program in Cadiz
