International Exchange Program

Mercy Ambassadors Exchange Program

Assumption's international exchange program was initiated in 2007 by assistant principal and dean of students Cindi Baughman. It is four-week exchange with two Sisters of Mercy's schools: Colegio Santa Ethnea in Bella Vista, Argentina, and St. Teresa in Johannesburg, South Africa. 
Students from the international schools travel to Louisville during the spring semester to spend four weeks attending Assumption High School classes with their host student (who also provides living accommodations). The Assumption host student in-turn travels to Argentina or South Africa to attend classes at the exchange student's schools for four-weeks during Assumption's summer break. The Assumption students also live with their host students and their families.
For more information please contact Cindi Baughman at

“I realized it was a once in a lifetime opportunity. I hadn't heard of another program where you get to host a student your age then travel to their home and live with them. It is unique in that you are not only living in another country for a month, but living with a family, forming relationships, and really experiencing part of that country.”
