Academic Enrichment Teen Trips & Pre-College Teen Trips

About Academic Enrichment & Pre-College Teen Trips

Academic enrichment teen trips, often called pre-college programs, take learning far beyond the classroom and into the field as students get to experience what they're studying. From swimming with sea turtles in the Galapagos Islands to studying Spanish in Seville, students get to see, touch, taste, hear, and smell the wildlife, culture, and world around them. Popular destinations for academic enrichment teen trips include Latin America, Europe, Australia, Asia, Africa, the Caribbean, and South Pacific. Popular trip themes include language and cultural studies, biology, anthropology, and environmental science. Accommodations may include camping, hotel, youth hostel, and home stays. Best of all, many academic and pre-college teen trips also give students the opportunity to earn academic and community service credit for high school or college.

Ages, Dates, Trip Length, and Tuition Rates of Academic Enrichment Teen Trips

Most academic enrichment teen trips offer departure dates in June, July, and August. Academic enrichment teen trips can be as short as 14 days and as long as 35 days (about 2 weeks to 5 weeks in length). While each trip varies, most trips welcome travelers between the ages of 12 and 18.

Academic enrichment teen tours can range in tuition from $2,500 to $10,000. In most cases, airfare and insurance is not included in the tuition price. It's important to check with each tour provider to see if there are additional costs involved.

Choosing the Best Academic Enrichment Teen Trip

There are many important factors to consider when choosing an academic enrichment teen trip. What are the accommodations like - camping, hotels, hostels, or home stays? What cities, landmarks, and sights are seen? Do travelers have to meet certain academic prerequisites to apply? Do travelers earn academic or community service credit? What are the trip provider's emergency procedures? What costs are not included in the tuition price? Do campers need to bring special equipment or clothing? What kind of experience and training do staff members have before the trip?
