The partnership with Beijing Huaxia Girls' School is the cornerstone of the Global Relationships and Cultural Exchange program. Beijing Huaxia Girls' School — Ursuline’s first sister school and modeled after Ursuline Dallas — was the first all-girl school to open in China since the Cultural Revolution. Visiting UA students stay with a host family, attend classes at Beijing Huaxia Girls' School, and tour many of the ancient historic sites of China, including the Great Wall.
I absolutely love learning about new cultures. Hosting a student from China made me want to travel there. I also learned that I want a future career where I work with multiple cultures and languages.
