International Travel Program

Each year, the Global Education Program sponsors international travel opportunities as a way for students and faculty to gain an appreciation of other cultures, practice foreign languages, and learn about current issues facing local peoples - all while challenging comfort zones and embracing a greater sense of global awareness and interconnectedness.

These faculty-led trips may vary in length and nature from year to year, and some are part of established school exchange programs. These trips take place during the School’s two-week break in March and in the summer.

We are proud to be able to offer financial assistance for trips to families currently receiving aid for tuition.

For more information about opportunities abroad or financial assistance please contact Director of Global Education Dr. Karina J. Baum at kbaum@bbns.org.
