Our Sister & Partner Schools
Understanding languages and culture through relationships and exchange
Second languages are the key to a global mindset. Emmanuel College has developed strong partnerships and sister school relationships with schools overseas.
These inter-school relationships complement the Language Study Tour Programs and allow Emmanuel students unique opportunities to: immerse themselves in language and culture, participate in exchange programs and to welcome students from overseas into their own homes, College and community.
Our Sister School - Oberlin High School
Emmanuel College first signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Sister School Oberlin High School in Tokyo in 2008 but the relationship between the two schools dates back over 20 years. Students from the two schools have the opportunity to participate in an exchange in alternate years.
The Sister school relationship provides Emmanuel students a valuable immersion experience in the language and culture of Japan, attending school at Oberlin High and staying with a host family along with some tourist travel as a group. In alternate years Emmanuel families have the opportunity to host a student from Oberlin and benefit from the cultural exchange. See the Language Study Tour section of this website in the Unique Programs section for more information on Study Tours. Students can excel when they are offered the opportunity to immerse themselves in language and culture.
Along with our Sister School, Emmanuel College has established partnerships with the following schools:
