Nine students from Argentina are attending Faribault Bethlehem Academy from January 8th through February 9th and we will be visiting with some of them on our AM Minnesota program at 9:30 this morning.  An administrator and chaperone from their school in Buenos Aires will be joined by two girls from Argentina.  Also on the show will be the Bethlehem Academy Director of Admissions Kris Sauer and BA junior Olivia Morelan.

Olivia's family is hosting one of the students.  There are 6 girls and 3 boys in the school and they are visiting Faribault during their summer break between grades 11 and 12.  This is the second year Bethlehem Academy has hosted students from this high school.

The students go to classes at Bethlehem Academy (BA) and also receive a tour of the Faribault Woolen Mill, go tubing at Buck Hill, visit the Mall of America and do some other site seeing.  As part of the program they also get to visit other cities in the U.S. before and after their time at BA.

They get to visit some colleges on the trip.  Stops include San Diego, Las Vegas, Boston, Washington, D.C. and Florida.
