L.E.A.P to learn Our learning difference

Our trademarked approach to learning—LEAP—actively involves students in what they're seeing and doing. This active engagement between students, the places they visit, and their Course Leaders allows students (and teachers) to absorb more and build their knowledge and social skills.

Welcome to real-world learning Travel brings the classroom to life.

Whether reliving the past or discovering the future, true learning can't be done from a distance. It requires hands-on exploration and travel delivers it! When students get up close with the subjects they've only read about in books, learning moments are brought to life in a way in a way not possible in the classroom.

        Comments about WorldStrides Illinois History Discovery:

        This was a great trip. It was extremely educational. It allowed me and my classmates the opportunity to bind with new classmates before our freshman year. I got in touch with old friends, and made new ones. The trip would have most definitely cost more to have gone by myself, or with my family. The hotel was beautiful (at least for my room), but there was a kid who refused to allow anyone to stay in the same breed as him. In the end he ordered a cot, and forced my friend to sleep on it. There need to be more beds. Another thing about the hotel is, my friends and went swimming in the morning, but we needed an adult. We waited forty-five minutes, and one still didn't show up. We went on anyways. The trip was an amazing experience, but I probably would not go on it again until I am an adult, as to not ruin the great memories I created this time.
