I first came to Monteverde 30 years ago with my wife Deb [Debbie Rutherford, associate head of school], our son Matthew [’03], Gene Sancho [former Mercersburg academic dean], and a group of students from Mercersburg.
So much has changed since then as ecotourism has replaced dairy farming as the main economic engine.”Mercersburg’s relationship with CFS dates back to 1996, when CFS actively sought to create strong relationships with independent schools in the United States.
Students receive 3 hours of Spanish classes per day before heading out to different cultural and tour activities in the afternoon.
Activities include museum visits, national park tours, creative workshops, recreational games, and more.
In fact, Andrés Gómez Rodriguez ’06, the first exchange student from CFS to study at Mercersburg, hosted Rutherford in his home for the first three weeks of Rutherford’s sabbatical.
Rutherford’s second host family has no direct connection to Mercersburg, but the family does have a first grader who attends CFS.
