Trinity Prep Travel | Upcoming Trips

 

School Exchange Program in Paris March 2023

Foster global awareness and life-long friendships and embark on Madame Spallone’s French Exchange program with Notre Dame Les Oiseaux High School located in Verneuil-sur-Seine, west of Paris, France.

Your students will build lifelong connections with their French exchange partners as they immerse themselves in the daily lives of their host families and school. Prepare to become a host family too! On excursion days, students will explore Paris and visit its most historic monuments such as the Louvre Museum, Musée d’Orsay, the Catacombs, the Eiffel Tower, Château de Versailles and a bicycle tour of the gardens, Montmartre and the Sacré Coeur, etc.

This exchange is an immersive linguistic and cultural experience, and it is reserved to Upper School students learning French.

Please contact Vanessa Spallone for more information.

 

Ireland and England March 2023

Mrs. Walker is taking students on a private, custom tour to Ireland and England, for eleven days over Spring Break 2023. Our adventure starts in Ireland, where we will see some of the most spectacular and breathtaking views on this planet; the Cliffs of Moher, where the famous cave scene from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix was filmed; the scenic Ring of Kerry; and the amazing beach of hexagonal columns and stepping stones that make up the Giant’s Causeway. We will tour Dublin and then Belfast, where we will enjoy a walking tour about the “Troubles”. We will take an overnight ferry from Belfast to Liverpool, where we will visit The Beatles Story museum and enjoy a tour of the city the Beatles called home. Then it’s off on the train to London! Plenty of free time in London together allows us to visit and explore the street markets, restaurants, shops, theater, who knows, maybe even a Premier League game. Contact Mrs. Walker at walkerd@trinityprep.org for more details.

The Ellis Award, sponsored by the Trinity Parents Organization and funded by the Trinity Auction, can help fund your travel dreams.

The Ellis Award is applied to any international, faculty-sponsored trip in the 2022-23 school year. All upper school students are invited to apply. Funds are raised by the biennial Trinity Auction. There is no foreign language requirement, and seniors may apply for this award to be used for spring break trips only.

Applications are due Tuesday, October 25, 2022 at 3 p.m. to Ms. Rizzo in the Upper School office, located in Stuart Hall. More information can be found by viewing the Ellis Award Procedures

"My favourite thing about the Ellis Award is that it is intentionally given to people who, for whatever their personal reasons are, don’t have the opportunity to travel very much or at all. I personally chose to go to Iceland after receiving this award, and this is something that I simply would not be able to do in the foreseeable future without receiving the award. The trips that Trinity does are first and foremost great because students get to see parts of the world that they otherwise would never get to visit. Nevertheless, the more exciting part about Trinity’s trips for me was having the opportunity to be far away from my family and get some independence, while not having to worry about any responsibilities (besides keeping track of my passport). The Ellis award’s role in all of this was giving me such an experience which I couldn’t have had otherwise, and I can’t say how grateful I am about it."   ~ Seth Brunner, Spring 2022 Ellis Award Recipient

Past Trips

 

Japan

In March of 2018, Mr. Milsten, Mrs. Walker, and Mr. McGimsey led 28 students on a historical and cultural tour of Japan. Beginning in the very modern and busy Tokyo, where they spent an afternoon with a Sumo wrestler, they filled their afternoons with exploration, and their evenings with delicious Japanese fare. The students traveled by speed train to Kyoto, finding it filled with Shinto shrines, Buddhist temples, imperial palaces, and mystic gardens.
 

Paris & Loire Valley

In June of 2017, Mrs. Spallone led students on a historical and cultural tour of Paris, France.
 

Southeast Asia

Students captured the sights of Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam on this traveling photo workshop. In Cambodia, they shot bustling Phnom Penh, experienced the intricate temples of Angkor Wat, and stayed in a floating village homestay. In Vietnam, they toured the city of Hanoi and its surrounding villages. In Laos they explored the beautiful town of Luang Prabang, gave alms to monks, and rode elephants — all while practicing their skills with professional photographers.
 

Turkey

The beauty of the Trinity Prep Istanbul trips lies in complete immersion. The students jump outside of tourist areas to eat with the Turks. Eating Iskender Kebob while sipping tea and listening to the call to prayer booming from hundreds of minarets surely reminds you that you aren't home. Turkish baths and eating baklava with every meal, all while enjoying the architecture of Byzantium and the Ottomans, are experiences that arrive once in a lifetime.
