Vienna students, families and the community have played host to numerous exchange students over the years. In order for this to continue the school is seeking host families for this school year.

"This program is good not only for the foreign exchange students to experience America, but also for Vienna students to make connections across the globe," said Joshua Stafford, Vienna superintendent. Most recently, exchange student Mark Sharovarov from Ukraine was able to graduate from Vienna High School and transfer to Murray State University to continue his education.
