Global Odyssey

The Global Odyssey program provides every Woodlands Academy student with an international experience, either immersive or through a special class, in order to spark her global curiosity and develop her global competence.

Through Global Odyssey, students are given a unique opportunity to relate to and experience the world, fostering in them the ability to understand and act on issues of global significance.

GO on a trip

Each year, a variety of domestic and international trips are offered, designed by Woodlands faculty.

GO to class

Stick closer to home, but deep-dive into a single topic for an engaging and immersive 4 days.

GO on exchange

As a sophomore, take advantage of this time with no class, sports or extracurricular commitments to experience another Sacred Heart school abroad.

Setting out is one thing: you also must know where you are going and what you can do when you get there.
