You truly want a holistic education. Traveling and experiencing things first hand opens up your world to new experiences that no book or classroom can ever offer.  Going on a trip to Israel with Dr. Weaver has changed the way I think about the world, how I view scripture, and how I live my life.  It was absolutely priceless!  Rocky Clark, Superintendent and High School Principle

"The student study trips provided by FlatWorld Expeditions are phenomenal opportunities for any student.  The experiential education gained in meeting with businesses or exploring culture pays exponential dividends for the cost invested in the course.  Every student needs to participate in at least one of these trips and I know I can trust Wendel Weaver to provide the best possible education experience for my students."
