Overseas Trips

The purpose of this page is to give parents and students an idea of the types of trips offered to WHS students, the general cost of those trips, the timing of the applications and trips themselves.  Some of these trips may have already happened or the application deadline has passed but we feel the information is still useful to parents and students as they think about their time at WHS.
