Global Education Programs

Each year, several Solebury School teachers arrange exciting trips abroad to help expand our students’ worldviews. The trips are usually planned to coincide with the shorter winter break and spring break.

"The trips to Quebec and France were great experiences. They were opportunities I never imagined having! Seeing the Eiffel Tower and interacting with French people expanded my enjoyment for the French culture and enhanced my use of the language. Quebec, though cold and snowy, was so much fun. The Winter Carnival was incredible! The food, the culture, and the experiences I had with friends on both of these trips made them memories I’ll never forget."

  • Spring Break 2016 France Trip

    During spring break (March 6-14), Solebury is taking a trip in celebration of the art, food and history of France. We'll begin with three days in Paris, exploring the great museums and monuments before we board the TGV (a high-speed rail) to spend the rest of our time in the southern regions of Provence and the Cote d'Azur. It will be an unforgettable journey with visits to the beautiful cities of Avignon, Aix-en-Provence, Cannes, Saint-Paul-de-Vence and Nice, as well as a stop in the Principality of Monaco. There's no better way to end the winter doldrums than to take in all that France has to offer, from the smells of open-air markets to enjoying a little chocolat in a cafe to browsing priceless works of art.

    Although this trip is open to all students in grades 9-12, preference will be given to students who are currently enrolled in a French course. Depending on enrollment, the anticipated cost of this trip is $3,117. For more information, check out our France Trip Itinerary (PDF). A short application (PDF) is required.
