VIP Tour Week
For the VIP Tour, learning hits the road. Our students will travel to amazing places full of irresistible fun and memorable adventures. This year's destinations have been carefully chosen to elevate historical awareness, deepen cultural knowledge, forge closer relationships with peers, and, most importantly, provide enormous opportunity for continued English language development.
Each day’s adventure is designed to be an engaging learning experience. Students will read, write and speak about their trips, learn new vocabulary and encounter daily challenges, allowing them the opportunity to use English in real-life situations.
Older students interested in American boarding schools or universities will have the opportunity for special side-trips to visit some of the very best private high schools and universities. Harker alumni will offer guided tours with unique insights into applying, attending and being successful at school in America.
Furthermore, centered as we are in the heart of Silicon Valley, no VIP Tour is complete without visits to some of the world’s biggest technology companies. Learning insights from experts in a variety of businesses might inspire the next superstar entrepreneur.
