Travel Changes Lives

If you're looking for a run-of-the mill educational travel company, keep looking. But if you want an exceptional trip—amazing hands-on experiences, truly talented tour managers, and details designed to maximize your time—you're in the right place.

Since 1978 ACIS, the American Council for International Studies, has been a leader in quality educational travel for middle and high school students and their teachers. We believe in the power of travel to open students' eyes and change their lives—and every detail of our educational tours is carefully crafted to help make it happen. We are also committed to being partners in education with the teachers who take our trips, and work hard to help them select and customize trips that fulfill their curriculum objectives. While we offer a range of trip types to fit different budgets and goals, every trip features authentic meals, centrally-located hotels, and our signature Cultural Connections—experiential learning that brings students closer to the people, places and culture. We're also known for the quality of our tour managers: smart, well-traveled individuals hired for their knowledge, enthusiasm and ability to bring history and culture to life.
