Global Travel Program

  • In today's increasingly interconnected world, it is important to help students develop a heightened global awareness and the knowledge, skills and values necessary to compete in our global society. College and career readiness calls for a cultivated cultural perspective. To meet the need, Dublin City Schools is offering a district-wide Global Travel Program to complement our curriculum. We believe these international opportunities offer our students the perfect combination of knowledge and first-hand experiences.

    When students travel, they expand their knowledge of the world around them, discover more about themselves, and grow more confident. By taking part in a global travel experience, students will be given the chance to step outside their comfort zone, experience a new culture, and see the world from a different perspective. These skills are critical for creating the global citizens of tomorrow and we’re pleased to offer them to Dublin students.

    Collaborating with us in this initiative, we have chosen EF Educational Tours, the world leader in international education, as our primary travel partner. This worldwide company has long believed, as we do, that students and educators must understand the world around them, from cultures and languages to economic and social systems. We are aligned in our work around 21st century learning, and together we have created these educational experiences that teach critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, and global competence.

    The Global Travel Program trip costs with EF Tours include: round-trip airfare, accommodations in hotels with private bathrooms, chaperones, a tour director who travels with the group, sightseeing tours and excursions, applicable meals, airport transfers and transportation between destination cities, transportation to all included activities, entrance fees as specified, and 24-hour worldwide emergency services. Costs may vary depending upon when students register and reserve their spot on a trip.
