Caterham School Exchange Program
WRA is proud to participate in an exchange program with the Caterham School in Surrey, England. Through an application process, approximately 10 students are selected by the History Department to participate in the exchange each year. In June, WRA students travel to Surrey to attend classes with their student hosts. Time is also set aside for participants to visit sites of interest throughout England. In turn, WRA students host Caterham students during the school year.
Ellen C. Long Study Abroad (ELISA) Program
ELISA is a fully-funded summer home stay program of language immersion and cultural enrichment offered to qualified WRA students. The program is intended for sophomore students who have successfully completed a second year of language study and who have best exemplified the spirit of Ellen C. Long through their performance, effort and keen interest in the language and culture.
ELISA was named in honor of the late Ellen C. Long who demonstrated a life-long commitment to building bridges among cultures and peoples through her dedication, sensitivity to and appreciation of different languages and cultures. Thanks to the support and the generous donation of Dr. Dixon Long '51, ELISA has traveled to Costa Rica, France, Rome and Germany.
