Do you want to walk through the Louvre in Paris, recite Shakespeare in the Globe Theater in London, travel through Rome to the Pantheon and the Sistine Chapel before crossing into the Vatican City? For nine days students (and parents) will have an all-inclusive experience through England, France, and Italy. This is open to any homeschool families in North Carolina. Information is below, but there are also links to pdf files and you may ask any questions on the event page.
I had a wonderful experience traveling with EF as a student and want to offer this opportunity to homeschool families/students Fall 2018. The price covers a private tour guide, your flight, all hotels, all meals (except lunch) and entrances to every experience. It also includes trip insurance. Ages 12 and up may attend as part of our class, but kids as young as six may attend with families. Parents are encouraged to join us!
We will have a 6-1 chaperone ratio of homeschool educators to students and I will lead the trip. I have traveled through my job and have extensive experience leading youth trips (I just got back from taking middle and high schoolers to the Dominican Republic). I am happy to give you references or any additional information about myself and the chaperones.
EF is an accredited High School and College travel study program. You will receive high school credit (or college credit if desired) after completing the trip through EF or college credit through Southern New Hampshire University.
