Trips & Exchanges

International and Domestic Trips

Overnight domestic and international trips provide our students with the opportunity to extend their learning beyond the classroom and become global leaders. As in school, the goal of these programs is to engage students in hands-on learning and help them find their "spark of genius."

As an international school, Dwight has sent students to every continent and to countless countries. No matter the destination, every trip illustrates Dwight’s commitment to educating global leaders.
