LCHS Student Travel

LCHS Student Travel

Mr. Kem organized and led the first LCHS excursion abroad, Bell’Italia in March 2012, featuring students, parents, and teachers.

Liberty Common High School is committed to giving its students the best educational opportunities available. We have partnered with EF Educational Tours since 2012 and have offered trips to Italy, Greece, Spain, and Germany over spring break, with many more planned for the coming years!

Mr. Kem went on an educational trip to Italy as a high school student way back in the 90s and started talking about the prospect with Liberty students as soon as the expansion plans began. After extensive research concluding with the selection of EF, he’s both led trips and helped other LCHS instructors organize their own. Please don’t hesitate to email him with any questions or suggestions.

EF has treated LCHS students well, including incredible scholarship opportunities. Click here to read all about Class of 2013 Alumna Elizabeth Sherman’s experience on her free trip to Spain!
