More than 100 Xavier College Preparatory students and faculty members will embark on the school’s International Studies Program offerings in Ecuador, France, Ireland, Nicaragua, the Holy Land, and Poland this summer.

Five years ago, Xavier introduced the global opportunities in Ecuador, France, and Nicaragua as well as an exchange program that welcomes German students to Arizona each fall and sends Xavier students to Aachen, Germany, each winter, according to a press release.

An annual Easter pilgrimage to Lourdes, France, and this summer’s trip to the Holy Land and to Krakow, Poland, for World Youth Day 2016 complement the school’s international offerings this year. The objective of Xavier’s International Studies Program is to provide its students and faculty with global religious, educational, cultural, and service offerings.
