Hwa Chong Exchange Program

Staples-Hwa Chong Exchange Program 

Staples High School is proud to host exchange students (sophomore boys) from The Hwa Chong Institution in Singapore. 

As a host family, you need to be available to provide transportation, some meals (primarily breakfast/dinner), accommodation in your home, and be willing to expose the students to local social and cultural opportunities.

The students created videos which summarize the students' experiences (view below).

For additional information or to sign up to be a host family, please contact the World Languages Coordinator, Maria Zachery, at 203-341-5131 or
