In recent years, The J. Frank White Academy has begun offering international travel opportunities during Spring Break. This year, 19 students and adults traveled to France, Germany, and Switzerland on a tour organized by EF (Education First), JFWA’s tour company of choice.

The group flew out of the United States on March 17th and landed at the Charles de Gaulle airport in France on March 18th. The group visited Sacré-Cœur, a Roman Catholic church and basilica.

The group also visited Notre Dame Cathedral, the Versailles Palace, the Louvre, Fragonard, the Eiffel Tower, the Catacombs, the Swiss Alps, the Neuschwanstein Castle, and the concentration camp in Dachau. On March 25th the group departed for home.

Cassidy Carroll, a senior, was asked what her experience was like in Europe, she responded with “Traveling abroad is a life-changing experience. It was incredible to be able to experience other cultures- especially with some of my best friends.”

Shane Stevens, a senior was also asked what his experience was like in Europe, he responded with “The overall trip was good especially the people who participated.”

Next year’s spring break tour will be going to Peru. Any student or parent interested should contact, Mr. Greene, JFWA’s Spanish teacher, who is the tour group leader.
