Winter Cultural Experience
Summit Academy's Winter Cultural Experience is a complete cultural immersion program focused on the experience of learning in the American educational system, situated within the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
Each student lives with an American family for three to four weeks, during which they visit private and/or public school classrooms. In addition, there are many engaging tour activities, including but not limited to the following:
Sightseeing at PDX's numerous tourist attractions (OMSI, Oregon Zoo, Forest Park, City of Portland fountains and bridge walk, Portland Underground)
Experiencing the Pacific Northwest's unique American food culture
Exploring Portland's rich history through visiting numerous historical sites and buildings
Guided wildlife hiking in the only temperate rainforest in the world!
Toward the conclusion of the Winter Cultural Experience, Summit Academy invites students and families to a Winter Graduation Ceremony to recognize, reward, and celebrate the achievement and learning experiences of all of our students.
