Travel for Credit

Travel for Credit

Unforgettable Experiences. Experiential Learning. Lifelong Friends. Travel for Credit.

See the World and Earn Transferable Credits – An Unbeatable Combination

At EduTravel, we believe there is no better way to learn about a place, a culture, or a subject than by experiencing it firsthand. There’s a huge difference between experiencing Rome in a textbook compared to walking the ancient cobblestone streets that shaped our modern world; a massive gap between reading about Darwin’s adventures and literally following in his footsteps, experiencing the Galapagos just as he did over a hundred years ago.

Our goal is to fully immerse students in their course of study by taking them on a fun, informative, and safe trip headed by passionate educators across the world.

The benefits? Students come back more mature, more motivated, and excited to learn. And, as an added bonus, they’ve made friends and memories that will last a lifetime.

EduTravel March Break and Summer programs take students beyond the classroom on educational tours that are designed to instill within them a sense of wonder and excitement about whatever topic they’re studying.

With safety and education as our top priorities, we ensure learning goals are met while allowing your high school student to explore, have an adventure, have some free time to develop friendships and independence, and generally help them continue to grow into the amazing adult they soon will be.

How Travel for Credit Works

Our student travel programs are all tailored to be fun, safe, and educational. Each one is designed to give your child the opportunity to learn balanced with time to explore some of the most beautiful and celebrated places on earth.

The all-inclusive pricing means that you don’t have to worry about the details – see each individual trip’s page for more details on what’s included.

Travel for Credit Benefits

Teacher / TA-to-student ratio

No more stuffy classrooms with dozens of kids. Instead, your child will receive more attention and care from our educators. Every member of our trip team is a seasoned, passionate educator who can identify and adapt their teaching to a variety of learning obstacles and styles.

Teaching passion

It’s hard to inspire passion staring at a blackboard; much easier to do so when walking the streets of Paris. We want our students to not only learn, but also develop within them a love of learning. Many students come away from our tours with a better sense of self and what subjects interest them the most, making a potentially difficult university decision that much easier.

High-quality educators

Our team is made up of educators with years or even decades of experience teaching students. We make it a point of pride that our teachers and TAs are all passionate about the subjects they’re teaching and about the locations themselves, making the learning experience that much more engaging and memorable.

Focused learning

During the school year, your student is juggling multiple subjects, assignments, extra curricular activities, social time . . . not here. At EduTravel, the only focus they’ll have is on a singular subject . . . and to have an adventure of a lifetime, of course.

Superior academic outcomes

While we can’t guarantee superior academic outcomes (this is still a Ministry accredited course that must meet all of the curriculum expectations), with an engaging experiential learning model, the lower teacher/TA-to-student ratio and focused learning, typically students are able to achieve strong academic results.

Travelling the World

It goes without saying that travelling the world with friends can be a life-changing, unforgettable experience. Best yet, they can have all these experiences while earning high school credits and coming away with extensive knowledge on their subject of choice.
