Global Studies & Service Trips

Bullis School has a robust Global Studies Program, and this school year we are excited to offer a total of seven trips to international destinations!

Watch the sunrise over Angkor Wat, and then teach Cambodia children at a local school. Tour the Louvre, visit the Eiffel Tower, and stay with a French family and hone your French skills. Visit La Sagrada Familia, a famous cathedral in Barcelona, and immerse yourself in Spanish culture and language. Understand the history of apartheid in South Africa and spot elephants and lions on a safari. Retrace the ancient trade routes of Spain, Portugal, and North Africa. Zipline, snorkel, hike and see monkeys on a trip to Costa Rica while you practice your Spanish skills. All this and more is possible on our Global Studies trips!
