One way to bring Dwight-Englewood School’s Mission Statement to life is to create opportunities that allow students to nurture the skills and perspectives that help them become global citizens and leaders. To that end, we provide a wide range of international travel opportunities for our students to engage in the world. Trips offered to date have been centrally-focused around science exploration, leadership development, community service and language/cultural immersion. Some trips have offered course credit towards high school graduation as well as college credit.
Embark on a Peruvian journey! D-E students currently in Grade 8 will explore the Andean countryside, tour famous fortresses, cathedrals, and ancient ruins, and immerse themselves in the local indigenous culture of the Andes.
- Students will visit Cusco, former capital of the Inca empire, Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley, Arequipa, and the Colca Canyon, one of the deepest in the world.
- We will also travel through surviving ruins that provide a firsthand look into the Inca people, while observing and learning about the convergence of pre-Columbian, Spanish, and Moorish cultures that have shaped the art and architecture of the Andes.
- Peru is a country rich with history and remarkable for its indigenous people, culture, and traditions. Students will be travelers, not tourists, in environments far different from home.
An adventure awaits!
