Each year, the eighth-grade students of GreenMount School travel to a remote part of the United States or to another country as part of their Immersion Program. Students are immersed in the destination, learning about the geography, history, and culture of the people who call that area home. Students generally travel in the spring for 6-9 days, depending on the destination and goals of the trip. Recently, students traveled to Iceland to experience the raw beauty in nature and immerse themselves in the study of geology and Icelandic culture. In other years, the students have traveled to the Canyonlands of Utah, Costa Rica, the Netherlands, Scotland, and Spain. Academic preparation includes an independent study project on the country to inform travel and communication.
