Expanding access to high school and middle school students.

Xperitas is a nonprofit educational organization committed to making our short-term immersion travel programs accessible to as many students as possible. We provide meaningful financial aid on a “needs based” sliding scale to create equitable access.

Equity is not a new concept at Xperitas. Over the past decade we have dedicated over a million dollars to financial aid, scholarship and classroom grant programs.
