School groups from around the world can visit St. Croix during the regular school year to attend classes with an American student and then travel on a school bus to explore local attractions. The program includes pick-up and drop-off at the MSP (Minneapolis, St. Paul) airport, activities around the Twin Cities, and 10-15 hours of shadowing St. Croix classes. The daily schedule usually includes gymnasium and chapel time, three meals in the St. Croix Dining Hall, and enrichment classes with St. Croix’s faculty and staff.
Bilingual chaperones must accompany each group and be responsible for the health and safety of students ages 10-16. Students will also need to purchase health insurance. Groups may come for 1-4 weeks at a time, 700 USD per student per week. A payment of 20% of these costs is due to reserve the space and full payment is due two weeks before arrival. Space is limited and availability is only possible during the months of January, February, March, April, October and November. Groups interested in a July-August experience can see the information at St. Croix's Summer English Camp.
Students attending this short-term experience come to the United States on a B1 tourist visa. St. Croix provides a letter of invitation for students after receiving a group reservation. Please contact us at International@StCroixLutheran.org for questions or to reserve your group.
