Student Life

Global Studies

Students experience firsthand the distinct and exciting cultures of the world when they take advantage of the travel opportunities at Bullis. Trips vary in nature but all are led by Bullis faculty and may include study, community service, home visits and sightseeing.

Over the years student groups have traveled to a variety of destinations including Spain, Turkey, India, France, Thailand, Peru, Italy and China. The Bullis Model UN club participated in a conference in Russia, drama and choir students traveled to Italy and Austria to showcase their talents at international festivals and art students explored France and Italy while studying famous pieces and creating some of their own. Groups of students volunteered their time performing community service work with Habitat for Humanity in the Dominican Republic, Caring for Cambodia in Cambodia, and Learn Serve in Paraguay and Zambia.
