Spain Study Tour

A group of our rising eighth graders and their teachers are currently in Salamanca, Spain, for Saint David's fifth Spain Summer Study Tour.

The two-week trip provides our boys the opportunity to partake in a Spanish language immersion experience that augments what they have learned in Spanish classes at Saint David's through our school-wide Spanish language program, which commences in Pre-K.

Saint David's works in partnership with the University of Salamanca, the provincial government and local schools to offer a customized program for our boys. Their days include a mix of classroom studies in Spanish language and culture, cultural experiences, and the opportunity to play sports with students from local schools.

The boys have a wonderful time honing and improving their Spanish, and as important, participating in cultural exchange with the students and people they encounter in Spain.

The Salamanca trip is an example of how learning at Saint David's extends beyond the walls of our school building; the world, indeed, is our campus.
