International Trips

International travel is a long standing Seabury tradition. Our trips promote individual academic growth by providing students with personal experiences of what they study. In many ways, our trips are extensions of the classroom. Trips are designed to complement history, art, language and theater courses taught at Seabury.  Students have the opportunity to see and explore monuments, art, and historical sites that they have or will study in the classroom. Lectures are given on site either by professional guides or experienced Seabury faculty. These trips help our students to develop an appreciation for other cultures and ways of life. They also give students a forum for conversing with native speakers. 

Our trips are typically 8-10 days during our two week Spring Break in March. Our trips are planned and chaperoned by Seabury faculty to ensure that they meet academic and safety expectations. Prices range from $3200-$3900 which includes all expenses except for souvenirs. Scholarships are available. 

In 2017, Seabury traveled to Cuba

In 2018 the International Trip was to France. Dr. Schawang and Mme Derby chaperoned. This trip was a private, customized experience for Seabury students through Prometour, an educational travel company. Tour highlights included Paris, Loire Valley chateaux, a high speed train trip to the south of France, Monaco, Roman ruins in Provence, and the French Riviera.

2019 will be Seabury's first international trip to China led by Sonja Czarnecki. Beijing: See the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, the Temple of Heaven, take a tai chi lesson, and a pedicab tour through the Hutong.  Walk along the Great Wall of China! Xian: Visit the terracotta soldier army, experience the Silk Road culture of the ancient imperial city, explore street food delicacies, and bike along the Ming-era city walls. Shanghai: See the colonial-era mix of East and West, visit a silk factory, see treasures of the Shanghai museum, taste soup dumplings, and see the best acrobats in the world -- and enjoy the city view at night from the tallest observation deck in the world.

In 2020 Amy Meyers will lead a trip to Greece
