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.

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

Our trademarked approach to learning - LEAP - gets students actively involved 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.
