Pre-Departure Curriculum

The “World Smart Way”, our unique curriculum is carefully designed by a team of high school teachers, administrators, and collegiate study abroad professionals. It has lessons designed to develop self-awareness, emotional intelligence, and leadership skills. The curriculum will also provide opportunities to practice language skills and intercultural training. Students also study concepts dealing with social and cultural identity, prejudices and stereotypes, geopolitical issues, all in an effort to not just observe, but engage with the world around them.
