Reliving US History

Reliving U.S. History

Trace our nation’s footprints to freedom and peel back the layers of time that tell the tales of our country on our Reliving U.S. History programs. From the early days of European settlers to our rise as an international superpower, America’s history comes alive before your very eyes as you visit the landmarks, museums, and memorials that remind us of the past and lead us into the future. Every destination—Washington, D.C., New York City, Philadelphia, Boston, and Williamsburg—is teeming with national significance and an absolute must-see for every young student reliving U.S. History.

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. Learn about LEAP

We’re an actual school We’re a school, too.

WorldStrides is accredited by educational bodies across the country, and we have a dedicated Curriculum and Academics Department—this means we're an actual school (we just don't have walls!). As a school, we can offer students high school and college credit, and teachers free professional development.

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.
