ASCA- Reims

Our programs are varied and include annual middle and high school exchange programs between Reims and Arlington schools as well as teacher and student online programs, that predate the Covid-19 pandemic.
Last year, ASCA supported the cathedral choir of the Maîtrise de Reims for a three-week east coast tour with 48 of their choristers, including two concerts in this area.
ASCA Reims has developed a close relationship with Science-Po Reims and has arranged internships with the city of Arlington, hosting several Science-Po students.
For the centennial of World War I ASCA Reims organized a series of lectures along with the Arlington World War One Commemoration Task Force.
Members of ASCA Reims travel regularly to France, and host local officials from Reims for specific Franco-American events.
ASCA is a nonprofit organization affiliated with Arlington, Virginia.
