No two GAPP programs are the same! We will work with your group to create a program that is tailored to your specific needs. Our experienced program management team will assist you in putting together a travel package that is perfect for your groups’ needs. 


"Having a partner to handle so much of the organizational work and mitigate so much of the risk, whether it be related to handling the money, matters of insurance and liability, or solving problems should something go wrong in Germany, takes away a lot of headaches and worry."

Educational Brief

Stress Free GAPP Planning

You want the best for your students but increasing demands on your time in and out of class are mounting. Dedicated educators want to ensure they are offering the best, most cost-effective program possible. While doing all the GAPP planning yourself may appear cost saving on the surface, coordinating yourself might really be more costly in the end. There are compelling reasons to consider working with a language immersion travel specialist. The right organization may not only reduce the overall program cost but may reduce some of the non-tangible costs as well.
