Wilbraham and Monson Academy The Global School

Learning Through Travel

Each year WMA offers exciting opportunities for students to travel around the country and around the world to enhahce their classroom studies. Students can explore both the differences and interconnectedness of peoples and economies from around the world and around the nation. Travel is seen as an opportunity for WMA students to gain first-hand experience with the people, institutions and challenges of the modern world. 

The specific trips offered each year vary as do their academic focus. Community service, school exchange, business and design, language immersion, ecology/conservation, and visual art have each served as the focus of past trips. As travel opportunities are seen as extensions of classroom learning, all trips require pre-trip meetings, readings and post-trip reflections in addition to work at the site.

Focus: School Exchange - Plymouth College

Trip Leader(s)

Price: $500

Deadline: November, 2014

Description: Four students and one faculty member will travel to England in the spring of 2015. Students will be chosen based on academic merit and citizenship. Students will be housed at Plymouth College, a boarding school in Southern England where they will be fully immersed in British boarding school life. Additionally, the group will spend time visiting historical sites both in the south of England and in the city of London. Only students who have never travelled outside their home country are eligible for this trip as the trip is generously supported by friend of the Academy, Mr. Lev Hubbard. Preference will be given to those in good academic standing, who have demonstrated responsible citizenship and have a willingness to assist in the hosting of visiting Plymouth College students.
