Global Travel

We are called International for a reason. Our Global Travel Program is unparalleled. Every year, our Middle School students get to “Experience the World” quite literally by participating in unforgettable cultural and linguistic trips and exchanges all over the globe. Nothing could be more life changing. These unique experiences, inextricably shared and deeply personal, are full of intense, transformative learning moments that truly embody our school’s mission and values. These numerous trips abroad take place during the academic year and usually last about two weeks each.

2016-2017 Destinations


Morocco (Grade 7)

Our Grade 7 trip to Morocco is a wonderful opportunity for students to improve their Arabic while discovering the kingdom’s thousand-year-old culture. From a scavenger hunt in Marrakech’ souk to a camel-back ride in the Sahara desert; from the visit of Hassan II mosque in Casablanca to traditional cooking and calligraphy classes; this trip promises to be highly educational and delightful!

Dates: March 25-April 4, 2017

Peru (Grade 7)

Description & details coming soon. 

Italy (Grade 7)

Our Grade 7 trip to Italy is a grandiose immersive experience enabling students to improve their Italian through small-group classes, interaction with local students, and a homestay with local families, while visiting some of the most beautiful places on Earth: Amalfi, Capri, and Salerno. Of course, no travel to Southern Italy would be complete without a cooking class! Our 7th graders will also discover the art of ceramics during a workshop led by a renowned pottery maker.

Dates: March 25-April 6, 2017

France (Grade 8)

The Grade 8 trip to France is one of our school’s oldest traditions—a true rite of passage for our young French-American minds. Hosted by local families, students are paired with exchange partners from two world-famous schools: École Alsacienne and Notre-Dame de Sion. After two weeks, Paris will definitely feel like home for our students, who will get to visit some of its most exclusive locations and best kept secrets.

ROC (Taiwan) (Grades 7, 9, 10, 11)

Our middle and high school trip to the Republic of China (Taiwan) is a unique immersive experience open, for the first time this year, to absolute beginners who will be learning their very first words in Chinese, as well as to intermediate and advanced Mandarin speakers. After their classes and weekend stay with host families, students will be exploring the capital city of the island Taipei, spend time with an indigenous tribe, and discover the multiple facets of Taiwanese culture.
