Student Travel Opportunities

Here at Notre Dame, our students are offered many academic travel opportunities throughout the school year.

Spring 2021 - France

The annual French Exchange Program will take place in 2021 between Notre Dame High School in Los Angeles and Notre Dame de Sainte-Croix in Paris, France as follows:
 
February 15 - 28, 2021
 
French students from Notre Dame de Sainte Croix, in Neuilly-sur-Seine will visit Los Angeles. They will stay in our students' homes, attend classes here at Notre Dame, and visit local sites with their teachers and the adult chaperones. This will provide our Notre Dame families with a great opportunity to learn firsthand about life in France, to share a little bit of American life (and cuisine) with a young French student, and to forge a new friendship with a young visitor eager to practice their English with a “real” American family. Each visiting French student will need a separate bed, but not necessarily a separate bedroom--sharing a room is OK. In order to make this great opportunity happen, we will need some families who are willing to share a little bit of their time--and their homes--with these young French students. You do not need to speak French in order to host!

March 30 to April 10, 2021

Students from Los Angeles will travel to France, stay with French students and attend Notre Dame de Sainte-Croix in Neuilly-sur-Seine (located on the outskirts of Paris.) Notre Dame students traveling to France should either be enrolled in the NDHS French program, or have some familiarity with the French language, as we want our students to improve their fluency.
 
The purpose of the trip to France is to have your children experience France like a typical French teenager: they will attend classes at a Holy Cross high school, will live with French families and will consume (both literally and figuratively) French culture. Our students will also visit Paris—any trip to France must, of course, include The City of Light—and visit Le Mans (where Blessed Fr. Basil Moreau founded the Congregation of Holy Cross.)

Summer 2021 - Japan

The second ND trip to Japan will take place Summer 2021.

On this 10-day trip, students will see both modern and traditional aspects of Japan by visiting Tokyo, Kyoto, and other cities. Sightseeing will include historical temples and shrines in Kyoto, as well as modern cities like Harajuku and Shibuya in Tokyo. Students will also experience Japanese high school life and family life by staying with host families for a few nights in Shizuoka. Please join this amazing trip to Japan!

Summer 2021 - Europe

This program is a 12-day educational tour to Berlin, Prague, Krakow and Budapest open to current sophomores, juniors, and seniors graduating 2021.

Highlights of this tour include walk the enchanted, cobbled streets of Prague, touch the scars of the Cold War that remain in Berlin, marvel at tower castes in Budapest, get goosebumps in front of Krakow's gothic cathedrals, and marvel at the charm of old-world Vienna and the magnificence of the Schonbrunn Palace, the former seat of the Hapsburgs.

Summer 2021 - Spain

The trip is for the Summer of 2021, departing during the first week in June (earliest departure June 6th, latest return June 23rd). 
 
It is a ten-day trip. We are giving students the opportunity to enroll early with $95.00 deposit and be able to pay in installments (see chart below). I am also attaching the flyer with the itinerary which I think it can be uploaded to the site.
