Global Education

Upper Arlington Schools is committed to ensuring that our students leave Upper Arlington prepared for college and career in this increasingly global society. Through collaboration with EF Education First, our students will have the opportunity to apply their classroom experiences to the real world on a global scale by traveling abroad with their teachers. The option of worldwide travel is one of many steps our district is taking to ensure our students remain on the cutting edge of 21st-century education and the globally competitive marketplace. 
Working with EF, Upper Arlington Schools is committed to providing teachers and their students with travel opportunities to the world’s most educational destinations. During their time at Upper Arlington, students at both the middle school and high school level are offered several different tour options, or prisms, through which they can see world. As part of these programs, every Upper Arlington student will receive high school or college credit based on their tour and grade level.

Spring / Summer 2023 Travel Opportunities

Upper Arlington Schools will be offering several international educational travel opportunities for secondary students in 2023. These trips include opportunities for language immersion, global leadership, STEM and more. By taking part in this experience, students will be given the chance to step outside their comfort zone, experience a new culture and see the world from a different perspective. 

We will offer the following international educational travel opportunities in the spring and summer of 2023:

We hosted a virtual information night on Wednesday, May 25 to share more about these opportunities, including the specific itineraries and costs. You can access a video recording and slides from the presentation below.
