“A person cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.” – Andre Gide

Student travel, while always optional, is a valuable part of the learning experience, and at SCVi we highly encourage our learners to take advantage of these incredible opportunities to venture out and explore our country and the world. These experiences go a long way to help students understand themselves and others.

Students are encouraged to fund-raise for trips, which can be as much fun and facilitate as much bonding as the trip itself!
