What is the San Casciano Exchange Program?

Launched in 2018, it is an exchange between teens in San Casciano, Italy, and Morgan Hill. Sister Cities developed the San Casciano Exchange Program to give Morgan Hill teens a chance to learn about, share, and explore an international experience, as well as form life-long friendships and memories. The program is made up of two phases: traveling to Italy one summer, then hosting an Italian teen the following summer. July 2018 was in the inaugural trip to Italy when Morgan Hill teens traveled to San Casciano for the first time, so we are ready to host Italian students, Summer 2019!


What’s The Latest?

We are actively looking for Morgan Hill families who wish to host an Italian student in July 2019. If you are interested in hosting, please complete and return the Host Family Application as early in 2019 as possible. New families who submit host applications will be reviewed and confirmed/denied for program participation within three weeks of the application submittal date. Completion of a host application does not guarantee acceptance into the program. Morgan Hill residents are given priority over non-residents. The program is based on a family planning for both phases, hosting one summer, then the Morgan Hill student traveling to Italy the following summer. The next exchange to Italy is scheduled for the summer of 2020.


Dates for the summer hosting in 2019 are not yet finalized, but will likely be approximately two weeks between July 20-Aug 4. Contact  for most current information.
