Trips & Travel
In order to foster mutual understanding and respect among diverse cultures, Lovett sponsors spring and summer break trips around the globe.
Spring break service learning trips offer opportunities to volunteer in under-resourced communities. Students, parents, and faculty work in partnership with the local community to fulfill real needs, through construction-based projects and relationship-building activities with local schools, churches, and community groups.
The spring break trip to Italy is open to all students in grades 10–12. The purpose of the trip is to explore the major classical archaeological sites of Rome and Campania and to expose students to the continuum of Italian culture from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance. Students learn about the Renaissance through trips to the Vatican and various churches in Rome, Florence, and Siena. The most recent Italy trip was held in March 2016.
Courses on location are available through Lovett's summer school. In recent years, Lovett students have spent summers studying Israel's history, culture, and religious traditions in Jerusalem. They've documented the people and places of central Mexico in a photography course. They've explored Italian culture from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance in Rome and Campania. And they've learned tropical ecology and studied Spanish on location at Siempre Verde in Ecuador.
Several scholarship funds are available to assist Lovett students who want to extend their education beyond the walls of a traditional classrooms. For more information on these funds, click here.
