Upper School International Field Trips

Travel Changes Lives

Can travel make a difference in students' futures? It certainly can and does every single day. In fact, ACIS surveyed 930 former ACIS travelers to see how their tours abroad as young adults influenced their choices in education and paved a way for future careers. Many of them credit travel as a defining moment in their adolescence. Below you will see the types of opportunities available to Lake Mary Preparatory School students for the upcoming 2018-2019 school year.
