2025 Spring Break College Tour

March 24-28, 2025

A week-long expedition to visit up more than a dozen college campuses will be made available to Besant Hill juniors and sophomores during the second week of spring break. The region we will travel to will largely be determined by the interest of those who sign up, but most likely it will be to either the Pacific Northwest, New England, or California’s Southland region. Each day of the tour, students will embark on at least two formal campus tours guided by current college students and attend two formal information sessions led by college admissions counselors.
