Travel Destinations

In consultation with health authorities, our travel partners, and Kent Place administration, and after assessment of the current and potential pandemic conditions, we have canceled our June 2020 trips to Iceland, Japan, and the Baltics. We are also placing our Australia exchange on indefinite hold. Given all the preparation the chaperones and girls have done, it is with a heavy heart that we make this decision. However, we do so in order to protect the health and safety of the students and faculty from potential circumstances that could arise with this evolving global situation.

Furthermore, we are placing a pause on planning school-sponsored international travel for the 2020-2021 academic year. We strongly value our Global Learning program’s contribution to the development of our girls’ global competence, but we must prioritize the health and safety of our students and chaperones. Global experiential skills such as empathy, cross-cultural communication, and learning amidst uncertainty are more important now than ever. Please know that we continuously seek ways to infuse global learning into the Kent Place curriculum, and will continue to do so during these uncertain times of the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Global Learning Coordinator, Nathan Lutz.

Attending the service trip to Peru was one of the most memorable things of which I have been a part.

Interacting with the local students and staying with a host family was an experience that taught me how to adapt and grow in an unknown environment. This trip fostered my Spanish speaking abilities in ways that extend far beyond the classroom. Since returning, I have developed a deeper passion for community service and hope to return soon!" -Ellie Falivene '17
