Students on Tour Educational Programs will provide your child with a visual basis that they can use in upcoming history, social studies, geography and civics courses. Students on Tour enhances your child's classroom experience, enriching their current and future studies.
Students on Tour believe that travel in itself is a great educator. Using different modes of travel, staying in hotels, packing, having a budget, adjusting sleep schedules, perhaps trying different foods, seeing different regions and people of the country, and experiencing the wealth of sites all contribute to one educating life experience. Many students will hold the trip as one of the top memories of their educational experience.
Students on Tour Education Program Leaders will lead your child's group through amazing locations in our nation's history. Your child will be able to walk under the Capitol dome, explore the treasures of the Smithsonian, stand on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave his speech, read the Declaration of Independence in the National Archives, or find a name on the Vietnam Wall.
Students on Tour will also provide your student with a travel journal and workbook to help them keep track of the places they experience.
Students on Tour sees itself as an extension of your child's classroom. Our education programs will contribute to fulfilling the educational goals that you have set for your child.
SAFETY / SECURITY
Students on Tour takes safety and security seriously! Some of the steps we take, include:
Students on Tour understands that educators and parents make a serious decision when they decide to invest in the opportunity for a student to join an education travel program. It’s important to know that your hard-earned money is protected and won’t be lost before program begins.
We are pleased to assure you of our solid financial protection!
It is standard for student tour companies to provide a trust account for client funds; this is usually required by state law.
Most student tour companies offer self-administered trust accounts. The account is administered by, and accessible to, the tour company itself. The risk is that if a company goes out of business, the customers (parents and students) lose money
invested into the travel program.
Students on Tour takes the requirement for a trust account a step further by protecting client funds through an FDIC insured bank trust account, which is administered by an independent firm of Certified Public Accountants (Anderson, Hager & Moe S.C.). Other than the deposit amount, monies are held by the firm and they pay major program expenses as they come up. They continue to hold the funds until several days after the completion of the trip. This provide great peace of mind to all involved.
