Benefits for the Simcoe community

Everything we do at EF is dedicated to expanding travel opportunities for students. We’re thrilled to have
found a partner in that mission with SMCDS. Besides the chance to bring your students on the most
epic field trip ever, here are a few of the benefits of our Travel for Credit program.

Student access

Centred around equity of access to travel, we give students in your district the opportunities, resources, and tools to help make educational travel happen.

Curriculum integration

Beyond their own personal explorations, students will dive deep into the subjects they’re covering in class. These tours are accredited by SMCDS and align to the Ontario curriculum. Students will engage in their learning like never before, all while earning high school credit.

Lifelong impact

EF tours inspire learning outcomes that impact students for the rest of their lives, like confidence, empathy, cross-cultural understanding, and so much more. We believe these skills—and the travel that promotes them—are more important now than ever before.

“Experiential learning is the best way to reinforce long term knowledge. These learning experiences are something students never forget.”
