Is DCPS Study Abroad Right for Me?

We encourage all eligible students to consider applying for DCPS Study Abroad! DCPS Study Abroad trips take place in the summer, and they are between 8-12 days long. Our trips focus on language learning, community service, and/or global leadership. Students who are selected for DCPS Study Abroad are assigned a trip based on their World Language course history and interests. You can review sample itineraries from previous DCPS Study Abroad trips below, to get a sense of what our trips are like:

DCPS Study Abroad exists to make travel more equitably available to students.  Our selection process considers students' World Language course history, students' prior travel experience, the strength of a student's application, and schools' federal Title I percentages (i.e. Free-and-Reduced-Price Meals).  Review our eligibility criteria, download a copy of the application, and read more about our selection process below.
