The group in Florence, Italy

Each year, the international students have the opportunity to attend the annual Christmas trip to Europe over Christmas break.

In Assisi, the home of St. Francis

This trip is one of the highlights of their year at Everest. Not only did they spend Christmas in Rome with their “new family” in the international program, but they were able to see Pope Francis in person, visit the Vatican, Coliseum, the Roman Forum, and the Catacombs. They also had time to enjoy themselves, see a Premier League game in England, visit the Ferrari factory and museum in Maranello, and tour a few other cities. The trips offered by the international program provide the international students with opportunities to visit cultural sites in various countries and grow in their friendships with one another, and these experiences complement the integral formation they receive at Everest during their year away from home.

The boys are looking forward to the Easter Trip in a few months.
