Travel Clubs National & International Horizon Honors is excited to offer a variety of educational travel opportunities.  These opportunities not only enhance a student’s education, but create life experiences which build self-confidence.  Travel, whether national or international, awakens the senses—and mind—to different cultures, people, languages, and experiences.  Trips will vary by year and include a variety of opportunities including language immersion, service learning, and hands-on workshops or training.  Through these experiences students enhance their knowledge of history, language, art, architecture, theatre, literature, science, and culture while navigating the cities of the world, making friends, and having life experiences that create unforgettable memories.  Club members participate in pre-travel education and exercises to prepare for the specific trip and record on-trip reflections that recount each day's adventures to the Horizon Honors community via Facebook and Instagram.
