At St. Michael's, we believe that foreign exchange programs, international study, working internships, immersive and experiential coursework, and service to the less fortunate in the US and overseas have life-changing potential. To further our commitment to building personal growth and advancing the school's mission, we have launched the St. Michael's Winter Term Program, a unique academic, cultural, service, travel, and language immersion program now in its fourth year.
St. Michael's was the first college preparatory school in Austin to institute a Winter Term of specialized study.
In addition to the multi-cultural explorations embedded in our curriculum, St. Michael's students have the opportunity to experience firsthand the people, environments, and distinct ways of life in specially selected countries and programs. Each Global Learning trip includes language and culture study, home-stays, and sightseeing. Whether hosting or traveling, our students experience firsthand the distinct and exciting cultures of the world in which they live.
It is our hope that the Winter Term Program inspires students to become increasingly active, informed, and responsible members of their communities and the world.
