Travel Opportunities

Houston is a global power of industry, technology, culture, and medicine—but the scope of Houston alone could not possibly contain all that a global education has to offer. This is why our students have the opportunity to travel outside of our city and country with TSCS faculty. Through travel, students learn to deeply appreciate the places and cultures that have produced much of history’s finest contributions to human flourishing.   

While the cost for these trips is outside our regular tuition rate, we believe that such experiences are formative to students grappling with the expanse of the world we live in, and encourage students to attend if circumstances allow.

Students 6th grade and older are eligible for travel. 

NEW YORK CITY


Through our partnership with The King’s College, Saint Constantine students can experience the best that New York City has to offer through trips guided by TSCS faculty.

Students will attend lectures at King’s in the heart of Wall Street, visit historical sites, and experience cultural events around the city. In addition to guided touring, students will stay in a beautifully restored 19th century brownstone in the heart of the Upper West Side. Less than a block from Central Park and the American Museum of Natural History, this historic home provides students with a haven of comfort and safety amid the hectic pace of city life.

At TSCS we value wisdom and experiences that can be found in every corner of the globe. To expose our students to the vast array of God’s truth, we are committed to giving our students the opportunity to travel abroad as part of our community of learners.

Current students and their parents travel with the guidance of our experienced faculty, paired with the expertise of a professional tour guide. With private chartered buses, professional guides fluent in the local language, and included meals, students can navigate foreign countries with relative ease, allowing them to focus on getting the most out of their trip. The international tours occur on a rotating basis, meaning that students will have multiple options for travel outside the United States during their time at Saint Constantine.
