International and Domestic Travel Programs

"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness." - Mark Twain

Bolles students continue to experience the world through exchange programs and study abroad opportunities in distinctive locales throughout Europe and Asia. World language and cultural immersion, as well as safety and security, are priorities as students' understanding of how different people work, believe and approach their daily lives is broadened through these rewarding and numerous experiences.

Bolles shares exchange programs with schools in France, Japan, China, Spain and beginning in 2022 - London. Students have the opportunity to host visiting students as well as travel to these countries, expanding their knowledge of these languages and cultures. The programs are open to students in grades 9-11 except for the Spanish and Rome exchange program which is open to 9th-12th grade students. Any 9th-12th grade students can host visiting students for any of the programs.
For upcoming 2022-23 programs, all applications and deposits are due on October 28, 2022.
