Honors Study Abroad

Explore the world with Honors

Honors students have a special opportunity to explore new countries and cultures through study abroad trips specifically designed for Honors students.  Study abroad trips are life-changing and can enhance the education students receive in the classroom. Students have cited these trips as the highlight of their time in Honors. Through their experiences, students have broadened their perspectives, cultivated life-long friendships, and developed a increased self-confidence. Beyond that, students will learn how to operate in our global economy - a valuable and marketable skill to future employers.

In May 2021, Honors students have the opportunity to travel to Spain and Portugal! 

In Portugal and Spain, every step is a history lesson of its own—from Lisbon’s Moorish labyrinth of narrow streets to Seville’s impeccably preserved mosaics. The trail of breathtaking views and architectural wonders continues in Madrid, a city whose youthful crowds mix with a regional history of Muslim, Jewish, and Christian influences. Dr. Colin Snider will be teaching the associated summer course, and then students will embark on an 11 day tour with Katie Stone and Dr. Snider.  To sign up for this international experience or for a full itinerary of our trip, visit our trip's website.

Past Trips:

In May of 2019 Honors traveled to Italy and Greece to spend a magical 10 days exploring the cultural sights, sounds, and food of this region.  Coordinated by knowledgeable faculty and tour guides from the region, students gained an unforgettable and transformational experience.
