Study Away

As part of our mission to educate for a global society, we encourage our students to seek out opportunities for study, work, and travel outside of New Mexico, both abroad and in the United States.  To this end, Prep is committed to offering 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.

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.
