    German foreign exchange student spends part of year at Grovetown High

    In a year that’s been difficult for travel, foreign exchange student Nina Steiner, 17, made the trip of a lifetime that could change her life forever.

During her time in the U.S., Steiner had the opportunity to explore the Augusta area and attend the Columbia County Fair with her new best friend, Sam Lewis, who also attends Grovetown.

    Homeschooling boomed last year. But these 4 charts show it was on the rise before COVID
