US diversity.

In all 50 states, you’ll find a dizzying diversity of educational experience.  Whatever you’re teaching your students, you’ll find a destination that answers your curricular goals.

Our nation is rich in history, archaeological interest and museums of every description.  In every state, there’s a huge trove of educational opportunities.

From Boston to New Orleans.

Boston Freedom Trail

Boston is an endless source of rich learning opportunities, from American culture and history, to the arts.  From Boston Common, to the Freedom Trail and Faneuil Hall, the City of Philanthropy and Learning offers a rich heritage that opens the doors of the American experience to your students.

New Orleans is a singular American destination, on the banks of the mighty Mississippi River.  From its renowned musical legacy, to the story of the Free People of Color who once made New Orleans a city of prosperity and renown, the Crescent City never disappoints.

Your music students will walk in the footsteps of Louis Armstrong, the Neville brothers and the Marsalis family in the world capital of Jazz, Funk and marching bands.  Visit the Preservation Hall to experience traditional jazz, preserved for aficionados to enjoy today.
