International travel provides invaluable opportunities for allowing individuals of any age to develop a broader understanding of the world. These experiences are even more valuable throughout adolescence when youth are struggling to understand their place in the world and then environment around them. We want to provide these opportunities for our youth with the facilitation, guidance, and mentoring of our faculty and staff. Participating in one of our yearly mission trips (focused on community service, making a difference, and helping others) or study tours (focused on cultural and educational opportunities and experiences) can provide our students with memorable and valuable insights that impact the course of their lives.
