Local And Global Travel

The Higher Learning Program | Summer Themes | News And Events

A core component of the Higher Learning program was moving youth beyond familiar boundaries. Therefore, students traveled to various places around the town, state, region, country, and world.

For example, students may walk to the nearby college in town, journey to Baltimore and Washington, D.C, visit orchards and organic and sustainable farms in the county, and experience a living history center in Maryland.

High school students had the opportunity to travel internationally! There they learned about the social/cultural/political environment and community building activities in that locale. They studied the language, culture and challenges of the people, visited with change agents, and made links between social problems and solutions in that country and their own communities.

Arranged through the Center for Global Education, in 2011 we traveled to Cuernavaca, Mexico, and in 2012 we traveled to Managua, Nicaragua.  Then, in 2013 we traveled to Rabat, Morocco!  Visit our Facebook page to read more about and see pictures of our travels!

During the Saturday Program, students had the opportunity to earn service hours for school through our Semester of Service program.  Students participated in a series of organized service projects alongside McDaniel College students.

Further, we took students on college tours each year to learn more about different schools and college life and preparation.
