International Travel Groups
Marian High School offers several opportunities for students to travel both for enrichment and pleasure. By immersing themselves in the language and culture of other countries, students are able to translate classroom lessons into real life experiences, and understand the greater world around them. Recent trips have included visits to Costa Rica, Spain, Portugal, France, England, and Italy.
Marian faculty organize, facilitate, and chaperone each trip utilizing expert student travel companies. Parents are always welcome to join the trips as well.
