Global Education and International Travel

Educational opportunities at Darien High School extend well beyond our campus. Each year, students take advantage of opportunities to learn in the world beyond our community. The World Language Department runs a variety of faculty-led programs that help students in grades 10, 11, and 12 learn in ways that are not possible here at home. We have partnered with Education First, the global leader in student travel, to bring rich language learning, leadership, and service opportunities to our students.
