Non-TVS Travel Programs


The following abbreviated list is mainly for summer programs for 15-18-year-olds. There are also Gap Year programs (between high school graduation and beginning college) and semester and year-long programs available. Contact Dr. Roemer for more information.


When selecting a study abroad program beyond what TVS already offers, a few things you need to consider first are:

  1. where you want to go;
  2. for how long/when you want to go;
  3. what you want the focus to be (e.g., language, community service, TOE-like experience, school credit, home stay…);
  4. about how much you can spend; and
  5. other reasons you want to go abroad.
