Note: Although the Prescience Adventures are the same for our high school and college participants, the delivery and emphasis is adjusted to reflect the objectives of our participants. High School and College participants form different and distinct groups which follow their own itinerary.

At the high school level, studying abroad indicates independence, motivation, and a desire to have new experiences and meet new people. For our high school participants, Prescience Adventures are geared more towards gaining new skills and knowledge with the potential to shape their individual goals and directions. High School participants learn about topics of interest to them, while at the same time are immersed in the culture of the country they are visiting and having FUN! This experience will strengthen their college applications; but even if their path after high school leads to travel, the military or joining the workforce, the Prescience Adventures will provide them with the confidence and global perspective that will benefit them in any future endeavor.

While the cultural immersion component is still strong, for our college level participants, there is more of an emphasis on what overseas study can do for their CAREER progression. The locations and curriculum for the Prescience Adventures are specifically tailored to the issues and objectives reflected in the Adventure. College level participants learn how to navigate uncertainty, maximize opportunity, and pursue the career and life they want. In other words, they learn how to make “work” work for them.
