Whether it’s experiencing the historic streets of Europe, or the vibrant cultures of South America, these programs provide a global perspective that extends far beyond the confines of a classroom.

Cultural adaptability

Living with host families fosters a deeper understanding of cultural diversity and encourages adaptability. This experience helps students develop cross-
