ICS offers the only K-5 student exchange program in Rhode Island.

ICS is proud to offer students in our 5th grade Portuguese/English class the Azores Student Exchange program. This unique program gives students an opportunity to travel to the island of Faial in the Azores for 8 days during the April spring break

While there, students enjoy traveling the islands while sharpening their Portuguese language skills and learning about the culture, food, history, geology, and government of the Azores.

Thank You

We are grateful to the Direção Regional das Comunidades for partnering with ICS to sponsor a portion of the Azores Student Exchange program. Additional funds are raised by ICS through various fundraising initiatives to make it possible for all 5th grade students to participate.

The ICS Azores Blog

Since we began the Azores Student Exchange in 2016, we have shared our experiences with the ICS community through the Azores blog. Students and teachers collaborate on the blog to share photos and write about the exciting people, places, and things they’ve experienced on the trips.
