Passport Program

The Passport Program is the result of a generous gift from an anonymous donor. This program offers all students one free international Intersession during their four years at Sonoma Academy.
Because adolescence is the perfect time to broaden horizons and be exposed to the big, wide world, the vision for the Passport Program is that all of our students will have the opportunity to experience this benefit.

Each year, we offer four to six International Intersession courses for students to choose from. Many trips recur every other year to ensure that students will have more than one chance to sign up for a trip. Each trip has a particular focus--these are not tourist excursions, but immersive experiences that can be focused on the sciences, sustainability, art, literature, mythology, culture, service, language skills, or some combination thereof.

In previous years, Intersession travel courses have been offered to the Bahamas, Baja, Bali, Belgium & Holland, China, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Japan, Nicaragua, Patagonia, Spain, and many more countries around the world.
