9th-12th Graders, Sign Up by November 15 for a World Language Trip

November 08, 2017

Each year, 9th-12th Grade world language students have an horizon-changing opportunity to participate in language immersion trips all over the world, both to strengthen their world language skills, as well as to learn about other cultures and broaden their perspective as world citizens.

This year, the World Language department is offering four opportunities to travel through Global Works, an organization that arranges international travel for school groups and organizations. The trips offered will take place during spring break, and will bring students to New Orleans, Chengdu,  Martinique, and Panama.

Applications are due by November 15. See below for details on each trip.


This journey takes us to the land between North and South America. Our journey begins in the cosmopolitan capital of Panama City where we explore the history of Casco Viejo and witness the engineering marvel of the Panama Canal. We head north to a small town to live with families and work on service projects. Finally, we return to Panama City to wrap up and reflect on our amazing experience.



Discover what makes New Orleans one of the most unique places on the planet! With its blend of culture, music, and people, you'll be blown away by the vibrancy of this city's spirit. Participate in meaningful service projects that impact the community. From a live brass band on a random street corner to the alligators of the swamps, prepare for an unforgettable trip of service and culture.



The island of Martinique is an exotic slice of France, tucked away in the Caribbean. It exudes a distinctly French feeling, layered with a complex colonial history, beautiful beaches, delectable Caribbean cuisine and welcoming people. We live with homestay families for four nights, volunteer with environmental initiatives and run activity days in local schools. Get ready to practice your French, dive into adventures, and make community connections on this dynamic travel program.



Connect to a deeper side of China on this journey to Chengdu and the surrounding region. We have a school exchange day at a local migrant school, visit the Giant Panda Breeding Reserve, and travel back in time for a night in an ancient mountain village accessible by steam train. Get off the tourist track with this unique opportunity to learn about the many cultures that contribute to China as we know it today.
