Policies for travel in 2021-2022

Travel for 2021-2022 will be limited to domestic and local sites, with no international programming, due to border restrictions surrounding COVID-19.

Due to the continued high levels of transmission of COVID-19 domestically and the increased risk of severe outcomes for unvaccinated individuals, LFA will require all students participating in travel through the Stuart Center be fully vaccinated by the date of departure.

  • There may be further requirements from our chosen trip vendor and/or destinations.
  • There could also be further changes based on circumstances tied to COVID-19.
  • All travel will be assessed at 90, 60, 30 and 7 day intervals.

Travel at LFA

Travel at LFA is how we live our ideal of a “midwestern heart and global mind.” We also practice our school values of scholarship, responsibility and character through mindful travel that goes beyond tourism to learning and seeks to connect with communities through intention and purpose. 

There are two types of travel: experiences directly linked to the curriculum and tied to an academic class, called curricular travel, and co-curricular, travel that goes beyond the curriculum to experiential learning. The Stuart Center works to organize both kinds of travel experiences in conjunction with the Head of School Office, Academic Council, the Global Group and the Dean of Students Office.

We are excited to announce that for co-curricular travel, we are working with Peace Works Travel, a non-profit with a track record of working with independent schools in organizing travel experiences that focus on fun and learning. This year, our travel experiences will take students to Chicago, Arizona and Washington D.C.
