Study DEMOCRACY & AESTHETICS:  GREECE

June 23-July 4, 2018

Imagine discussing the meaning of life in the very places Socrates, Plato and Aristotle pondered the same thing, then heading to the Plaka for some souvlaki.  Swim in the Agean Sea, windsurf off the Island of Naxos and catch another sunset at the foot of the Temple of Zeus.  Don’t be a tourist.  Be a traveler!

The Experience

There are so many overseas summer programs, it can make your head spin. I’m so glad we chose this one for our daughter and son because not only did they have a fantastic experience traveling, but they came away with a deep understanding of how ancient Greece influenced our lives today. Thanks to Greg and Lisa, my kids are beginning this school year with a renewed love of learning and that, as they say, is priceless.
