International Immersion Experience

A 7-day international immersion experience

This short-term international experience allows students to learn about active citizenship through a global perspective. This experience provides an in-depth understanding of the history, events, and current political climate in the country we visit in order to gain a better understanding of the root causes of social issues

We will have an international experience May 2023! We will be going to Costa Rica. Please check back later for the application.
