FORT WAYNE, Ind. — Nineteen German exchange students will have the opportunity to experience American life for one month this Spring through the German American Partnership Program (GAPP).
The GAPP program has existed at Concordia Lutheran High School since 1985. It’s an educational exchange partnership between the high school and Zeppelin Gymnasium in Lüdenscheid, Deutschland. On opposite years, CLHS students visit Germany and stay with families there while experiencing the culture like German natives. Then, the following year, those German students come and stay with the same CLHS families in the U.S.
Nineteen German students (10th and 11th grade), along with two adults, will arrive on March 15 and stay in the U.S. until April 11, attending classes at CLHS, visiting various sites around Fort Wayne, and going on Spring Break with their host families.
Concordia Lutheran High School, located at 1601 St. Joe River Drive in Fort Wayne, Ind., was founded in 1935 as a private, co-educational Lutheran high school open to students of all faiths and backgrounds. With Christ at the center, Concordia continues to pursue educational excellence that equips individuals for lifelong learning and service as disciples of Jesus Christ.
