"Go Europe!" - A one-year Lithuanian-German cultural immersion program

The Lithuanian High School offers a one-year Lithuanian-German cultural immersion program called Go Europe! for students from overseas. The program provides an opportunity to gain an understanding of and appreciation for both Lithuanian and German language and culture. Students live and learn in an inter-cultural environment while participating in both classes and school-based programs and projects. Students of Lithuanian descent can discover the language and culture of their ancestors while experiencing life in the heart of Western Europe. Go Europe! students are enrolled in a part-time academic program and live in the school’s dormitories. Life in the dormitories offers ample opportunities to broaden their horizons by experiencing both German and Lithuanian culture in a unique environment. The program will only be offered if at least five students participate.
