Take Your Journey with ACIS in 2018

Leading a school travel program opens doors to new worlds in every sense of the word. Students see new lands, gain new perspectives and experience personal growth beyond their expectations. Teachers watch their curriculum come to life and grab new ideas for further enriching their classroom instruction. And classmates and teachers at home benefit from the global inspiration that these returning ambassadors bring back to the school—planting the seeds for the next wave of budding global citizens.
We are in awe of the impact that travel has on schools each year and have set out to make traveling with ACIS in 2018 more accessible and rewarding than ever.

What’s New in 2018:

  • Next Generation Travel – More and more teachers are looking for immersive and innovative ways to engage their students. We’ve answered the call with new and expanded offerings in the areas of Youth Leadership, Language Immersion, Service Learning and STEM-Focused Travel.
  • New Destinations – We’re excited to launch our ACIS America division specializing in trips to the U.S. and Canada, meaning now you can enjoy the ACIS experience when traveling closer to home as well.
  • More Accessible Pricing – For schools where a travel program’s price must be the primary concern, we’ve sharpened our pencils to make our Explorer Value Trips more competitive than ever before.
