PALCS is excited to announce that the next high school extended stay trip will be to Eastern Europe! A group of PALCS high school students and teachers will be traveling to Germany, the Czech Republic, Poland, and Hungary in June of 2019. As the group travels, they will learn about the Iron Curtain and World War II, see castles and Gothic cathedrals, and explore vibrant cities.

The trip will consist of expert-led educational tours to many historical locations, including the Topography of Terror Museum, Auschwitz and Birkenau, Wawel Cathedral, St. Mary’s Church, Matthias Church, Fisherman’s Bastion, and more.

The group will begin their trip arriving in Berlin, Germany, where they will meet their tour director. Following Berlin, they will venture to the cities of Prague, Krakow, and Budapest. If they choose to extend their trip by two days, they will also have the opportunity to travel to Vienna, Austria.

In the past, PALCS has sponsored trips to China, Panama, Costa Rica, Canada, and countries throughout Europe. Here in the states, the PALCS community has traveled to the Chesapeake Bay Watershed, Washington, D.C., Harrisburg, and other places of cultural significance. This past year, a group of students traveled to Florida to study at the Florida Keys Marine Lab. PALCS educational trips focus on key areas such as language, science, mathematics, history, civics, and leadership.

Currently enrolled families, please see the archived announcement from March 13 on PALCSchool or contact Mrs. Intelicato for more details about this exciting Eastern European experience!
