In addition to the included excursions, Blyth Academy Global High School is made even more memorable through a variety of Optional Excursions available to students in each location.
These activities take place outside of both class hours and included excursions and are designed to enhance the overall program experience by immersing students in local traditions, such as Italian or Costa Rican cooking classes; pushing their boundaries with adrenalin sports like hiking in Spain, surfing in Australia, and bungee jumping in New Zealand; and expanding their horizons with trips to museums, monuments, landmarks and cultural centres.
In our tropical adventures, students will have ample opportunities to get wet and wild – with optional SCUBA diving and snorkelling offered in a number of locations, river activities such as kayaking or rafting, and awesome underwater animal encounters.
Students will also have the opportunity for land adventures, such as volcano boarding in Nicaragua, city walking tours, and biking through Oxford.
In Europe, we’ll cater to the culture-cravers, with Optional Excursions to famous attractions and museum, and to places of historical importance. Outdoor lovers can take advantage of a hiking tour of the Pyrenees, a cruise on the Mediterranean or beach town excursions.
Optional Excursion registration for each Term of the 2018/2019 school year will become available closer to the program date. Check back soon!
