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 the world. 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 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.

Additional international and domestic travel programs including travel to Italy, Peru and U.S. national Parks enhance Bolles students’ understanding of our world.
