Student Travel

Forming Global-Ready Servant Leaders

Travel provides meaningful learning experiences for Marist students and is an important part of preparing them to be compassionate servant leaders. In offering exchanges, mission trips, and co-curricular student travel, Marist School has the unique opportunity to leverage the international network of the Society of Mary to highlight and strengthen the shared mission of Marists worldwide. Travel experiences help students make connections around the globe, learn to dialogue across differences, and begin to understand and express the inherent dignity and perspectives of people from a variety of cultures close to home and abroad.

  • Co-curricular Trips

    Marist offers a variety of co-curricular trips designed to engage students' interest and expand their knowledge in diverse ways.
    Art History Spring Break Trip
    Dr. Bieze traditionally offers a trip for students enrolled in AP Art History during spring break. Students have traveled to Spain and France, as well as other domestic and international destinations, to visit museums and other sites of interest. This trip is also open to students enrolled in AP U.S. History.  

    NAIS Student Diversity Leadership Conference
    This trip offers students the chance to network with students from other independent schools and learn new skills to increase their awareness of issues surrounding diversity in the Marist community and in the larger world. Participation in this trip is by invitation only.  

    Bearing Witness Trip
    The primary mission of the trip is to advance and disseminate knowledge about this unprecedented tragedy, the Holocaust, to preserve the memory of those who suffered and to encourage students to reflect upon the moral and spiritual questions raised by the events of the Holocaust as well as their own responsibilities as citizens of a democracy. This trip is open to students in grades 10-12; should interest exceed the number of spaces available, preference will be given to seniors and/or those students who have taken or will be taking the Holocaust course at Marist.
