Educational Travel

Travel is proven to broaden the mind, enrich the soul and educate us about new places and other cultures. At Saint Mary's School we believe it is important to offer our students opportunities to expand their horizons and enhance their understanding of the people and places that comprise our exciting and complex world. Designed to provide students with meaningful learning experiences that build on and enrich their Saint Mary's School education, the educational travel program offers a range of experiences from which students may choose, including service trips, academic exchanges, cultural excursions and history trips.  

Trips are offered throughout the academic year and during the summer. Most of our educational travel offerings are school-sponsored trips, however there are also trips organized in partnership with other schools or sanctioned by Saint Mary's. Deadlines for all 2016-2017 travel opportunities come in the early fall, so planning ahead is important when considering a travel experience.
