Travel Abroad

Every year, current Marianapolis students have the ability to take their education abroad during Spring Break. The Marianapolis Travel Abroad Program builds students’ character through enriching educational tours that promote cultural discovery and foster responsible global citizenship. These tours challenge students to build independence and develop intercultural competence as they engage with distinct cultures from around the world, encouraging students to critically think about their own experiences and compassionately consider the experiences of others.

2024 Trip

Grecian Odyssey

Embark on an odyssey to the Greek Islands. Students will experience the history and culture of this ancient and modern land. Athens will be our first destination. Students will climb to the Acropolis, visit the Olympic stadium, and explore food and shopping in the Plaka district. The trip then heads north to Delphi to consult the oracle and south to the Peloponnese, to the land of the Spartans. The final leg of our journey will be a three-day cruise around the Cyclades. Beautiful Mykonos and Santorini will no doubt be a highlight of this maritime adventure. Students will engage in ancient history, learn how to cook in the Greek style and enjoy the wonderful warm climate of the Mediterranean on this Marianapolis Abroad trip. Registration is closed
