Who Are We?

World Class Programs is an independently owned and operated study abroad company that specializes in high school study abroad. We are founded on the principals of quality and safety, and are dedicated to providing the best learning experience for our students. We have been in business for ourselves since 2016, but our dedicated team of global educators have been working in education and with students during the past decade. World Class Programs and our staff specialize in creating customized summer learning experiences for our students based around the student's personal plans and preferences.

Our programs are designed from the ground up to be unique, and to provide an individualized educational experience for each of our students. This is done by providing a small staff-to-student ratio on our trips to give our students a great deal of individual attention in their class work. We also tailor our trips to serve students long after they leave us. Upon completion of one of our programs, our students are more globally minded, leadership focused, and independent. We always try to maintain contact with our students and alumni, and support them in their educational and professional goals long after their time spent with us in the summer. In our line of work, we do not just travel with the students; we help all of our students build lasting experiences and memories. Let us arrange the details of your adventure.

why do we do it?

At World Class Programs, teaching is our passion. From the initial construction of our program, to the day that we say good-bye to the students for the summer, all of our staff work daily to ensure a fun, safe, and educational adventure for all students. Our knowledgeable teachers and experienced global staff are always here to provide engaging and fun curriculum. We do this by using our very own method of teaching. This method was developed by our Director Derek Tano and it is based largely around the educational theories of Dr. David A. Kolb. Our teaching method is centered around out-of-the-classroom learning, and builds upon experience, rather than textbook learning, to deliver information. With this method, we bring the curriculum alive with valuable experiences and cultural immersion opportunities. Along with the educational benefits, students will also meet new people from around the world, and experience a new way of life different from their own. All of this combines to form the ultimate summer experience with World Class Programs.
