Middle School Group Programs

Leave the classroom behind and broaden younger students’ perspectives to increase global and cultural awareness.

Our middle school travel programs are designed to provide a global education framework for students to learn about what it means to travel, explore new cultures, and take an interactive look at the world in a safe and structured environment.

High School Group Programs

Kickstart personal growth and ignite passions through cultural immersion, language exchange and impactful service.

Our group travel programs for high schools are designed to catalyze classroom lessons by building on previous educational experiences and encouraging students to step outside of their comfort zones within the safety of an organized and structured group experience.

University Travel Programs

Put learning into action. Our custom-built university travel programs bring students beyond the classroom into real-world learning experiences through immersive and topic-specific travel experiences.

From environmental issues to marine biology to business and micro-finance, our University Programs are designed to fit a wide range of groups and to enhance students’ academic and career goals.

“I think the Cuba itinerary was planned perfectly. The group activities were meaningful and always had a purpose, they weren’t just a game or something to keep them busy. The leader was so organized and that made everything run so smoothly. Traveling with my students to Cuba was such an amazing experience. I can’t wait to work with ARCC in the future”

Ashley C.Teacher on High School Program to Cuba

“ARCC has put together an impressive service learning model and has found wonderful people and partners to work with. Our leader and itinerary were fantastic, they made the trip so positive and memorable”

Erica C.Teacher on ARCC Middle School Program to Cambodia

I have been so impressed by ARCC’s ability to provide a program that both provides for every need students and teachers may have (even if unexpected!) and fosters a sense of freedom and possibility that allows the students to build their new/renewed community from the ground up. The ARCC guides are without fail professional and warm, knowledgeable and approachable, prepared and relaxed with the kids. I can’t recommend this experience highly enough

Tailored and Flexible Programs

There is no limit to what we can do when creating a custom itinerary; programs can range from a few days to a few weeks, from domestic locations to the furthest reaches of the globe. Regardless of the location, each and every custom adventure is designed with great attention to detail and is always led by our experienced trip leaders.

A True Partnership

From the first contact through the program and beyond ARCC is dedicated to creating a program ideal for your specific outcomes. We provide programming guidance, marketing materials, online or in-person information sessions and more. Once all participants are on board, we create and send an information packet to each group member to ensure they are ready for their big adventure. While programs are running we provide 24-hour support for staff and participant families.
