Travel-Study Programs

Experience the World with Webb

The Webb School embraces the world first with a diverse student body from many different regions of the United States and from many different countries. World language travel and study through cultural exchange allows Webb students to “go to the world”, enrich their language skills, explore new places, and serve others. Webb also fosters exchange programs that bring global students to our campus community.

 

Be Part of a Global Community

Webb offers several opportunities for travel abroad each year, organized by faculty both within and beyond the Department of World Languages. These programs are typically scheduled around school holidays and summer break so as to not interfere with students’ academic studies. In recent years, Webb students have traveled the globe, exploring such locations as China, Costa Rica, France, Italy and New Zealand. Travel opportunities vary each year, and there are always faculty members eager to plan trips to locations of student interest.

Florence - Trip Abroad

Visit Italy During Spring Break

Spring Break 2023

March 25-April 2, 2023

Consider the deeper meaning of “Beautiful Italy” as you experience its art, history, and culture. In Venice, cars and roads give way to gondolas and canals, redefining what a city can be. The world’s best collection of Renaissance art awaits in Florence. And in Rome, behold Michelangelo’s take on creation at the Sistine Chapel and retrace the footsteps of ancient Romans at the Colosseum.
