St. Johns County Students Leaving the US for a Foreign Exchange Program:

Rising juniors may participate in a foreign exchange program.  Students may not participate in an exchange program in their senior year as it may jeopardize the completion of graduation requirements.  There is no credit guarantee for courses taken in a foreign country.  Course descriptions in English can be reviewed for advanced approval, but there is a high probability that no credit will be granted.  Therefore, students should consult with their counselor and carefully weigh their options for meeting graduation requirements.  Students who leave the country for a foreign exchange program are not eligible for tuition-free courses through Florida Virtual School. For additional information, contact the student’s school counselor.
