March Break Activities 2024: Things to Do on March Break

March Break Activities 2024

March Break activities in 2024 are important. 

Every year, hundreds of thousands of students are left searching for things to do on March Break to fill their time. 

While there are many March Break camps to choose from, one option that gets overlooked too often is to send your high school student on a summer break trip. 

Not only is the trip accredited (meaning it will help with your child’s graduation plan, potentially lessening their load in the coming year) it also is a chance to take in experiential learning, which studies have shown can lead to superior learning outcomes. 

Things to Do on March Break 2024 – Why Choose a Student Trip for Credit

There are many, many benefits of study abroad programs.

Some of them include:

  • Superior learning outcomes – between experiential learning benefits, a highly curated curricula, and a low student-to-teacher/staff ratio led by passionate educators who both love and are knowledgeable about the subjects they teach, students often find greater academic success when studying abroad
  • Personal growth – sometimes getting out of the familiar can lead to great leaps of self discovery, or even just growth maturity and autonomy spending some time away from mom and dad
  • Passion – for kids that have difficulty identifying a passion in their studies, sending them to learn about, say, art history in Paris has a way to kindling that passionate fire
  • Hone language skills – there is no better way to learn a language than to immerse yourself completely in it
  • Build friendships – spending time with friends in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is a great way to form lasting bonds and memories

Not to mention that you all, moms and dads, get to have some time on your own at home over the break.
