The Land and Literature of England
In this program, students explore some of the most respected works of English literature. Authors covered include Jane Austen, Geoffrey Chaucer, T.S. Eliot, John Milton, and William Shakespeare. The subsequent trip to England gives students the opportunity to experience the context in which these works were written.

In this program, students examine the life of Sir Winston Churchill, one of the greatest statesmen in history. The allied invasion of Normandy in 1944 will receive particular focus. Students will then travel to locations in France and England and revisit the places and events of one of the most significant periods in modern history.
Western Civilization: Visions from Italy

Guided tours of sites like the Pantheon, Forum, and Colosseum give students a firsthand experience of ancient Roman civilization.
The Roots & History of American Liberty
In this program, students study the origins and development of the American experiment of liberty under the rule of law. A tour of historic cities like Philadelphia, Gettysburg, and Washington, D.C., serves as a backdrop for the examination of the nation’s Founding Fathers, history, and principles.
