Academic Travel Program

TASIS pioneered the concept of Academic Travel in 1956. Our students have been exploring Europe ever since.

Committed to academic excellence, we have made our natural and cultural setting in Europe our classroom. At various points throughout the year, all Middle School and High School students have the opportunity to go on Academic Travel trips that fall into three broad categories: cultural, outdoor education, and snow sports. An integral part of the curriculum, Academic Travel is included within tuition fees.
