california dreamin’

COURSE OVERVIEW

This has been the best experience of my high school career. I’ve just made friends for life!

Our course begins in San Francisco, where we take in the Bohemian vibes of The Beat Museum, City Lights Bookshop, and the legendary Haight-Ashbury neighbourhood. On our road trip down the scenic coast, we will stop in booming Silicon Valley, quaint Salinas, breathtaking Big Sur, sandy Santa Barbara, and star-studded Los Angeles.

We will gain a deeper worldview with visits to The Museum of Tolerance and the LA Regional Food Bank, but also make time for fun at the Santa Moncia Pier and Six Flags.
