*Extended deadline and new dates! Deadline to register is now January 30th 2017

This 9-day adventure will have students experiencing all that is France. Embark on a journey to discover the art, history and culture of France by visiting the popular destination of Paris as well as the less known towns of Normandy and Brittany.

Paris has a timeless familiarity for first-time and frequent visitors, with instantly recognizable architectural icons, along with exquisite cuisine, chic boutiques and priceless artistic treasures. This bustling city will have you immersed in new cultures — surrounded by the people, the language, the food, the way of life—creating inspirational moments and life-time memories.

In Normandy and Brittany, another side of the culture reveals itself, from the D-Day beaches to the tranquil lifestyle in the fishing village of St. Malo.
