Semester/Year Abroad Information

The School offers a total of four tuition/fee waivers. These waivers are prorated for the portion of the year that a student will be away from campus and are offered on a first come, first served basis.

The School cannot guarantee that a student who is accepted to a study abroad program will be granted a tuition/fee waiver, therefore it is imperative that families communicate with the School throughout the process.

Seniors are not eligible to participate in study abroad programs.  The School believes that senior year is a culminating experience for our students, providing unique social and educational opportunities throughout the year.  Because of this, seniors are expected to complete the entirety of the year on campus.

Interested students should fill out the Study Abroad Interest FormPlease refer to pages 64 & 65 of the Family Handbook for additional information on policies and procedures related to the MBS Study Abroad Program.
