Adventure in Andalusia: Discount Expires 11/15 
 
All high school students are invited to participate in an amazing educational excursion to Spain this summer from May 29 to June 10. We will visit several cities, with a special emphasis on Toledo and Andalusia, areas rich with a blend of cultures-Christian, Muslim, and Jewish-and abundant physical traces from the Romans, Visigoths, Moors, and Castilians. We will visit palaces, a bullring, castles, mosques, synagogues, and two of Europe's best art museums where we will see incredible and memorable works by some of Europe's best painters: El Greco, Goya, Velázquez, and Picasso. We will walk under the two-thousand-year-old arches of the Roman aqueduct in Segovia, and we will have time to wander around and explore great cities like Granada, Seville, and Toledo, where we will spend three full days and four nights.

Over the course of two weeks, students will have an unforgettably enriching experience, immersing themselves in the history, art, and culture of a special region-all with Veritas Prep's goals in mind: to foster a sense of wonder and a great depth of understanding in every student in every place we visit. Spanish-language students will get great opportunities to practice their speaking and listening skills, but no language preparation is required: the trip is open to everyone! You can find more information and register at the following link: www.explorica.com/Nydegger-5059. A $150 discount with voucher code WorldTraveler2019 has been extended until November 15. Contact Mr. Nydegger for more details.
