CMASAS offers exciting opportunities for families and students to travel internationally to experience different cultures. Our international trips are different from our regional gatherings in that they are extensive multi-day trips that explore an area while our regional gatherings are local half-day gatherings to provide a combined social and educational setting to meet other students and faculty.
Our international trips may offer students the choice to receive elective credits.

PREVIOUS TRAVEL EXPERIENCES
CMASAS students got to know the charm, tradition, and beauty of Cuba. In Havana, Cuba’s capital city, we discussed the region’s conservation efforts, educational resources, and national identity with locals. We then journeyed east to Cienfuegos to discover Cuba’s culture firsthand with a trip to an art studio as well as music and dance performances. We visited the Pay of Pigs, an old sugar cane plantation, and rode a steam engine train, as well as played baseball with the locals. We also viewed the re-enactment of Fortaleza, which is part of Cuba’s propaganda machine.
SPAIN AND ITALY
Students and parents met in the Mediterranean sun to explore the historic wonders and natural beauty of Spain and Italy. On this 12-day excursion, we visited Madrid, Barcelona, Rome and the Tuscany region, which included Florence, Lucca, and Pisa. We examined the intertwined histories and experienced the architecture, art and cuisine of Italy and Spain. From the Prado and Park Güell to the Roman Colleseum, CMASAS students explored perspectives on these pillars of Europe.
Our students had a wonderful time in South Africa. Students were able to see rhinos, cheetahs, elephants, giraffes, hippos, and zebras at the Zulu Nyala Preserve. They also explored the history of the apartheid by visiting Nelson Mandela’s home and the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg.
