Japan/Australia Trip

Exciting news! Your student is invited to join us on a once-in-a-lifetime international travel experience with their peers to Japan and Australia in Summer 2023! (Japan 2022 trip is now rescheduled to Summer 2023)

Educational travel exposes students to new people, places, and cultures which in turn expands their knowledge of the world and their knowledge of themselves. That’s why I’m thrilled to bring this opportunity to your family and our community.

This trip will fill up fast, so please join my informational meeting to learn:

  • How this opportunity will benefit your child
  • What we’ll see and do on our trip
  • Everything that’s included in this experience
  • How your child can earn academic credit
  • How we’re keeping this safe and affordable
  • How to enroll on this trip (before it fills up!)

Our meeting will be held on May 25, 2022 at 6 PM - there are limited spots available so don’t miss your opportunity to reserve your seat. One parent must be in attendance.

So that I can alert you of any changes to this meeting, you must register using this link:
