Study Away

As part of our mission to educate for a global society, we support our students in seeking out opportunities for study, work, and travel outside of New Mexico, both abroad and in the United States. In the past, Prep has offered faculty-sponsored trips during spring break and the summer; these have included travel to Guatemala, Costa Rica, the Galapagos, Cuba, Paris, London, China, Cambodia, Peru, and Barcelona. As we emerge from the pandemic, the school is eager to resume offering these opportunities.

In exceptional cases, students may request a leave from Prep to pursue their studies in an approved domestic or foreign program.  These requests are reviewed on an individual basis; leaves are granted only to a limited number of students who demonstrate academic and developmental readiness, who have met major graduation requirements, and who are in good academic and behavioral standing.
