Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania

During this program, students will spend time on a collaborative retreat experience with Loyola students, stay with host families while attending daily classes, and will have an unbelievable opportunity to participate in a Safari.
Focusing on spiritual, academic, and personal growth, students will be asked to step out of their comfort zones and truly embrace everything the amazing culture of Tanzania has to offer. For this program, Junior students will receive service and retreat credit and Seniors will receive retreat credit. 

List of 4 items.

  • Eligibility

    Sophomores, juniors, and seniors are eligible for this program; preference will be given to juniors and seniors. Retreat credit will be awarded to juniors and seniors. Juniors will receive service credit.
  • Host Family Experience

    Because cultural immersion is such an important part of our exchange program, and in an effort to keep our cost reasonable, our students stay with host families during all of our exchange programs. BC High students who host an exchange student in their home and participate in an international seminar have the most fulfilling experience. 
  • Program Costs

    Estimated at $3100. Cost includes tuition, board, meals, travel within Tanzania, and activity fees. Expenses that are not included are: round-trip air travel, personal items, and services such as passport fees, phone calls, and personal spending money. (Final cost is determined by participation.)
  • Program Dates

    This program runs for two weeks in February. Students will travel during February vacation and miss an additional 5 days of school before or after February vacation. Students will be responsible for meeting with teachers to create a personal plan for assignments and class time missed while in Tanzania.
