TMLA hosted 20 students (9 boys and 11 girls) and 6 Administrators as part of our ongoing programs with the Istituto Secondario Gaetano Curcio in Ispica, Sicily.  For the last 8 years, we have been conducting video conferences with the Italian students giving TMLA students the opportunity to practice their Italian Language skills.

In addition to the visit on March 16,  for the last two years we have had Cultural Exchanges with the Instituto whereby TMLA students have gone to live for a week with a prearranged Italian family and their daughter has come to live with the TMLA student for a week.  From the smiles in the photo one can see the success of these programs.
