Travel Abroad Opportunities


In the spring of 2019, LPS will be sponsoring trips to France, Germany and Spain.

Eligible students must currently study French, German or Spanish in their respective high schools. A minimum 2.5 GPA with no F’s and a C grade or better in French, German or Spanish class is required by applicants and must be maintained through trip dates. Students should be in good health, physically and emotionally, and must be willing to rearrange schedules in order to commit to required orientation meetings prior to departure. Applications are available below, from French, German and Spanish teachers, and from the World Language Office, 5905 O Street. Please do not ask your world language teacher to forward your application and deposit to the World Language Office. Please deliver or mail them to Kate Damgaard, World Language Curriculum Specialist, Lincoln Public Schools, P.O. Box 82889, Lincoln, NE 68501. For trip descriptions and prices, please see the links above this paragraph.  Thank you!


Xperitas is the non-profit company that arranges our custom itineraries and matches our students with families who may have similar interests or students of the same age. Please see the websites below for more information.

Xperitas Student Applications will be filled out at the parent meeting. See the “Calendar for Parents and Students” for parent meeting dates.
