The exchange between the IV Gimnazija School in Zagreb, Croatia and CCC has been in existence since 2002. The IV. Gimnazija is a public high school in Zagreb, Croatia specializing in languages. All the participants speak English exceptionally well. The exchange is designed to provide an opportunity for the visiting Croatian student to experience “life in American culture.” In turn, when our students visit Croatia they have the opportunity to experience “life in Croatian culture and history” and learn what their day-to-day life is like in a country who became the 28th member of the European Union in 2013. Many of our students who have hosted a Croatian student have in turn been hosted by that same student during our annual visit there.
