During the semester, our staff organize many all-school activities and excursions, from afternoon cooking workshops to daylong excursions and weekend trips.
Excursions in the region will give you the chance to explore Alsace and the Black Forest in Germany. Depending on the semester, you’ll be able to go hiking or snow-shoeing, taste local specialties in a ferme auberge, or visit such famous Alsatian villages as Riquewihr or Kaysersberg.
There will also be longer weekend trips to more distant destinations. Some semesters the group goes to Paris, or Dijon, or even to the spectacular Swiss town of Interlaken. These trips always combine cultural activities and visits with free time for personal exploration.
Remember, these all-school trips and excursions are covered by your program fee, and include transportation, lodging, visits and some meals.
Several courses have study tours associated with them. The French History classes include visits to important regional sites from the two World Wars, and the Art History classes spend a weekend in Paris. Please note that there is a special course fee for these course-specific study tours.
