Gryphon Global Studies

  • France 2019 Versailles

    The L&N STEM Academy is excited to offer students, staff, and families opportunities to explore the world through our Gryphon Global Studies program. Our goal is to offer at least one international travel opportunity every year, so students have multiple opportunities to travel during their four years at the L&N.

    Some recent destinations include Germany, Switzerland, England, and Italy.

  • Fall 2019: France - Paris and the Chateaux
    During this nine-day tour, we’ll travel to France and tour Paris, the Loire valley, and the coast of Normandy. We’ll visit the Louvre, the Garden of Kings in central France, the Palace of Versaille, the Allied landing sites during the D-Day invasion and much, much more. It will be a trip full of history, art, architecture, and of course, great food! This trip will be led by Sean Blevins.
