Global Travel Club

Welcome Travelers!

Who We Are

Global Travel Club is a club that brings students together to explore the world around them through Group Travel opportunities.

Mission of Club/Activity

We believe travel opens students to a world of possibilities, allowing them to actively engage with topics they’ve only read about in class. As our schools move in the direction of global education, connecting our students to experiential learning is an integral piece in helping them understand a world outside their own. Students who travel report an increase in self-confidence and understanding of their own cultural values while stretching what they think is possible. They gain confidence, deepen friendships, build new ones, and develop an increased understanding of history and the world.

In 2017, our group toured Greece, Italy, and Spain, and in 2019 we traveled to London, Paris, and Madrid.

Our 2021 trip, originally planned for New York, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia, has been cancelled. We hope to offer more travel opportunities in the future!
