WHY STUDY ABROAD
- Broaden worldviews and strengthen faith life
- Develop self-confidence and critical thinking skills
- Learn discipline and independence
- Stand out on college applications
The benefits of studying abroad in high school are innumerable. This unique experience, both academically and culturally, will broaden worldviews and provide opportunities for personal growth and development by gaining self-confidence and life experience. Students will gain a sense of independence, learn to discipline themselves by balancing their own schedule and become well-adjusted to functioning away from the comforts of home. They will also develop critical thinking skills, experience new types of learning, and stand out on college applications.
This three-week summer program provides a unique opportunity for students who may not be able to participate in a semester-long program. Additionally, students interested in further exploring study abroad opportunities in college will gain initial exposure to living, traveling and studying in another country.
WHY ST. JAMES STUDY ABROAD PROGRAM
This exclusive partnership with Franciscan University gives the unique opportunity to live in a cultural environment similar to the one we have at St. James and one that will strengthen our own faith culture and deepen our students’ faith lives. Students will also attend class, daily Mass, and travel together as a community.
