ROUND SQUARE EXCHANGES are opportunities for students to visit another school in the Round Square network for roughly 4-6 weeks, generally over the summer break. Each individual Round Square School sets its own terms and conditions for the exchange and provides its own requirements, information and advice. Students can check the Round Square website to research schools (https://www.roundsquare.org/our-schools/) but should not contact the schools directly to arrange an exchange. After submitting this application, students and parents interested in these exchanges will meet individually with Ms. Lindsay Conkle Dorman to work through this customized experience.
