Bonjour et en route pour la France!

The trip to France is a great opportunity for French learners to live the French culture and language. It is also a perfect combination of enriching visits and home life experience. After a four-day stay in a hotel in Paris, where we wander in the streets to get a feeling of what it is to be a Parisian and to live among all these great monuments, we make our way to a smaller town in the Loire valley: Saumur. There we are hosted by French families of the Lycée Saint Louis, with classes in the morning and visits in the afternoon (Châteaux de la Loire, Angers, Saumur...) before heading back to our host families.

Groton's Global Education Opportunity (GEO) to France occurs every other year, alternating with the GEO to Italy.

Groton School is a diverse and intimate community devoted to inspiring lives of character, learning, leadership, and service.
Groton School is recognized as one of America's top boarding schools. It prepares students in grades 8-12 for the "active work of life."
