International Trip

“The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
-Saint Augustine

“Travel, in the younger sort, is a part of education; in the elder, a part of experience.”
-Francis Bacon

Palo Alto Prep believes that travel is part of a universal education. Travel is important because it fundamentally transforms us. This experience of waking up to the power of your own transformation fires you up to “be the change you want to see in the world,” (Gandhi).

Changing Lives, Redefining Education

“Michael attended very fine public and private schools, day and boarding schools, in New York and California. But until he chose to attend Palo Alto Prep he never had the motivation that was the only missing component to his success.

Your fine staff of teachers motivated and guided him and communicated with us on a regular basis. You went to bat for him against the SAT Board in Princeton to attain the proper testing conditions for him, and gave him the freedom to be the creative person he is. We just wish we had found you sooner!”
