Parent Meeting April 11, 2018

Missed the Parent Meeting? At the parent meeting we showed an introduction video from WorldStrides, which you can view here in English or in Spanish.  And answered the frequently asked questions.

Register, Gift of Education, FLAG financial assistance

Dear Parents,


We had a great meeting about our 2019 WorldStrides program. I wanted to reiterate some important topics from the meeting:


  • Most importantly, don’t forget to register for the trip – you only pay a deposit of $49 to sign up! There are three easy ways to register: online at Our Trip ID # is 157835.  by calling the WorldStrides Customer Service Team at 1-800-468-5899 (8:30 – 7:00 EST), or by mail, using the form you received in the student invitation.  You’ll save $120 when you register before April 17th.


  • There are many options for individual travel funding, including the Gift of Education program, which includes Gift of Education E-Cards and Facebook links. You can find detailed information about fundraising ideas and scholarship options at If you’re interested in helping to lead a fundraiser for the group, contact me to get started. Help from a few dedicated parents can really make a big difference!


  • Don’t forget about the $2 million in the FLAG financial assistance fund. WorldStrides is proud to be the only travel company that offers this level of financial assistance to its families.  It is given on a first come-first serve basis and the guidelines are generous (AGI $85,000 and less).  Every dollar is helpful so I encourage you to call WorldStrides for more information.  (800-468-5899).  You never know until you ask, right?!


  • I know some interested parents were unable to attend, so I’ve included the link to WorldStrides’ Parent Presentation. Please share it with anyone you know who wasn’t able to make it!


Please let me know if you have any questions about the trip. I look forward to leading a fun and educational program for your child!


All the best,

Diana McClean

Full Refund Program

You are encouraged to sign up for the full refund program.  This is an additional cost, however, it protects your investment.  Life happens.  As much as we want every student to travel on their planned trip, unexpected difficulties can pop up that can make it necessary to change your plans.  Add trip protection when you register for your child's trip, and you'll get a full refund of all funds you've paid to WorldStrides.*  This is optional, but we strongly recommend you elect this coverage.  It'll give you peace of mind.


*Less and non-refundable deposit, fees, and the Full Refund Program Cost.

How it works…

  1. Sign up for your trip.

Screen Shot 2016-04-21 at 2.02.58 PM.png

Discovery for Credit is a fun way to reflect on your experience and learning during the travel program.  And, getting starting is easy!

Students register for Discovery for Credit online through their student MyTrip account.  You can register before, during, or even after you travel.  Students traveling on a non-science based international program,

please call 800-468-5899 or email  for academic credit information.


Once you are registered, you can select the course(s) that are of most interest to you—and most relevant to your particular travel program.


After you travel, you’ll work at your own pace within your six-month window to complete all online coursework.  Our instructors will provide feedback on your work as you go.  You’ll engage in activities that offer options for video responses, opportunities to use photos from your experience, and that invite you to participate in discussion with your peers.


Once you’ve completed both the travel program and the online portion successfully, you’ll receive an official transcript from WorldStrides or our university level partner.


Your official transcript will be sent directly to your home address and you can choose how you’ll use it.  Transcripts stand and may be submitted alongside your traditional high school transcript as a form of distinction in your academic profile during the college/university application process.


You may also present your transcript to your high school registrar for consideration toward inclusion on your high school transcript.  Acceptance is always determined at the discretion of the receiving institution.  You can contact the Worldstrides Curriculum and Academics Team for supporting documents via
