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.
