SPI Study Abroad, the leading provider of first-rate high school overseas programs, is pleased to announce that John Paul II High School will make up the first SPI travel group in 2012. The excursion begins March 10, 2012 when language savvy John Paul II High School students depart for Rome.
While other high school students are spending their spring breaks with their families, high school students at John Paul II, with at least one year of a romance language under their belt, will be experiencing the learning opportunity of a life time with one of the their own teachers, Mrs. Laura Hudec. A condensed list of activities reveals that these students will undoubtedly receive high amounts of Italian input and expand their global cultural understanding by immersing themselves in another culture.
