Santa Clara Sister Cities
 

Our Purpose:

To enrich the lives of our students through cultural exchanges to build strong leadership skills and to enhance goodwill and global understanding.

SCSCA has three Sister Cities in the countries of Portugal, Japan and Ireland. Our organization was established in 1972. Each year, we provide opportunities for both Santa Clara students and students from our Sister Cities to experience each other’s culture on a first hand basis.

2019 SCSCA February 2019 trip to Coimbra, Portugal

Our most recent trip to Portugal was a huge success. Our students and chaperones were treated to an amazing week of sightseeing, great local food and a chance to emerge themselves into an entirely new culture!
