For the past three years, KAIS High School has partnered with Rustic Pathways to provide our students with an amazing travel opportunity. Each Spring Break, we travel to different countries for a service-based, culturally immersive trip. In the past, we have gone to Cambodia, Laos, and Thailand. Students have done a variety of volunteer work from construction to education to meal preparation. These trips have provided our students with invaluable lessons on the importance of commitment, communication, and community. Furthermore, a service-based trip will help make college applications more dynamic and attractive.
We have started the initial planning for next year’s trip and while we have yet to finalize a destination, we are leaning heavily towards Fiji. Because of both the popularity of this location and the dates available, we hope to get a confirmed number of interested students in the next few weeks to reserve our spot in this program.
While cost will depend on the number of participants and the airfare at purchase time, the total should be between $2,300 and $2,600 USD. Official registration (and payment installments) will take place in early autumn.
Interested students should initiate conversations about this trip with their families. Any questions can be directed to Laura.
