We are called International for a reason.
Every year, our students have the opportunity to participate in unforgettable trips all over the globe. These unforgettable experiences, inextricably shared yet deeply personal, are full of transformative learning moments that truly embody our school’s mission and values.
Each destination has a specific theme and focus—athletic, linguistic, or scientific—but all have a cultural and service learning dimension. They provide extraordinary opportunities to enhance our students' globally-focused education outside the classroom and enrich their linguistic proficiency.
The trips abroad take place during the academic year and last about two weeks each.
As the world continues to adapt, respond and change, there are many things we still don’t know. What we DO know, however, is our desire to provide students with opportunities to be together - to have shared experiences and to grow. So, in years past we have traveled far and wide in search of cultural immersion, linguistic exposure and scientific exploration. Now, we are shifting our focus to think more about how and where we can be together.
