Student Travel Opportunities



Travel, both domestically and internationally is an important component to education. It is important for today’s students to be globally minded and one of the best ways to achieve this is through travel. Several departments at Mater Dei High School offer trips throughout the school year to give our students opportunities to see and experience the world that they have learned and read about. Through travel, students gain a global perspective and a strong independence that no other teaching method can impart.


At this time, the following trips are being offered and are enrolling travelers. Check back often as this page is updated as new trips are approved.






Summer Service Trip to Africa

The Activities and Campus Ministry Departments sponsor various trips that give meaningful insight to our global world. Whether it is a service trip or attending the Global Student Leadership Conference, students are able to participate in activities that are meaningful and give them a global perspective. The Summer Service Trip to Uganda, Africa will give our students the opportunity to participate in a meaningful service project while impacting community development. We will visit and serve the communities that we have assisted through Wells of Life.
