China Study Tour

Start a journey that will take you back through time…
and prepare you for a whole new future.

Bhudda Statue with SunsetChina. A land of mystery and endless history. Canada’s second largest trading partner, and growing. Yet what do we really know about it?

Do something amazing in the summer of 2017. Take a step back in time and visit the ancient wonders of China. Learn the language. Immerse yourself in its culture. See the Grandiose Tiananmen Square in Beijing, the ancient Terra Cotta Warriors in Xi’an, and practice your Chinese in the markets of Guiyang. Walk on the Great Wall, see the Temple of Heaven.  Live with a Chinese family and partner with a Chinese student who is learning English.

This four week program is designed for exceptional students. It is an immersive educational tour running July 2nd to August 3rd 2017* for students from 13 to 18 years of age.  Students going into grade 10 or higher are eligible to earn up to 10 extra high school credits for this experience.

Our China Study Tour guide is David Eifert, M. Ed., an Alberta teacher and principal with 34 years of experience who has been host to many international student experiences. While in China, the students are supervised by Alberta certified teachers during travel and classroom time.
