Travel Abroad Program

Since 2002, the Renaissance Academy has sponsored more than 40 high-end, intimately sized, concierge-style excursions domestically and abroad. Through unique custom itineraries, participants have the opportunity to learn outside the classroom, visit historic and cultural sites with outstanding local guides, experience another culture – its customs, cuisine, language, and history – and delight in conversation and laughter with fellow travelers who share a love of learning and a sense of adventure. Our excursions generally include accommodations in four/five star hotels; most meals and gratuities; private English speaking guides; deluxe motor coach transportation; and all entrance fees.
