Our Other Programs

Why not think of joining a small group of high schoolers for a 10 night visit to France. Three glorious days in Paris, and 7 in the idyllic countryside of lower Normandy. Visit the Loire Valley, D- Day beaches, loads of châteaux (medieval and Renaissance), cathedrals, Roman ruins, Renaissance art and architecture, museums, school, farm, shopping, and on and on. The 7 days in the countryside will be in a 300 year old, picturesque, renovated boarding school.

The cost is $2600 PLUS airfare (budget about $1000) and this covers about everything: all accommodation (including three nights in Paris), all transportation within France; all meals (except Paris…to allow choice), all entrance fees into sites; and travel insurance. The 2024 trip will depart around March 22.
