Lynx Travel exists to extend the Lausanne 360° mission beyond state lines and international borders.
We believe that providing our students with opportunities to learn through travel promotes global involvement while encouraging them to explore their personal talents and interests.
To facilitate this mission, the Lynx Travel coordinator works with teachers to design and promote domestic and international study tours that take place during summer, fall and spring breaks.
Open primarily to students in grades 7 to 12, trip offerings vary annually but are consistently broad in scope, spanning the spectrum from curriculum-based study tours to service-oriented community projects to culture/language immersion stays.
Whether it is living with a host family in the south of Spain, learning about water ecology on a rafting trip in Colorado, or stepping into the history on a WWII study trip to Japan, our students are embarking on journeys that expand world knowledge and inspire passionate and engaged learning.
This summer from July 1 – 15, 2023 - current 8th– 12th grade students have the opportunity to study Landscape (Plein-Air) Painting in the French countryside or study the French language in the Loire Valley in France. The combined study trip offers a great value and is in association with the Saint-Denis International School in the medieval town of Loches, France which will serve as our home base. Students need NOT be current art or French language students. Beginners are welcome! Students spend their mornings in class either studying sketching and painting on location in the countryside or engaged in learning the French language. In the afternoons and evenings, both sets of students gather with other students from around the world to engage in fun cultural, social, or athletic activities. On the “sandwiched weekend Saturday” between the two weeks of study, July 8th, the students spend the day in Paris visiting sites and taking a boat ride on the Seine River. Additionally, students will engage is special Bastille Day events on Friday the 14th of July.
Interested in learning more about this unique international study opportunity? Students and parents are invited to an informational meeting on Tuesday afternoon, October 4th, in the Atelier (Norfleet 103) from 5:00 until 5:45.
