Why Mariemont Travels?

Students at Mariemont High School are presented with several opportunities for international travel throughout the school year. Each summer, students from the Service Projects Abroad extracurricular group attend a week-long trip performing service in an underdeveloped nation. Also each summer, students have the chance to attend the Global Student Leadership Summit to learn and interact with a diverse group of students from across the world. International trips may also be offered with a world language class or as part of the Intersession program. Students are able to apply for need-based scholarships for each international travel trip offered by Mariemont High School.
