This Summer, TMI is offering "Servant Leader Adventures" for Middle and Upper School students.

The UPPER SCHOOL will be going to The Dominican Republic (May 26-June 1), where we will will be working with community schools and service organizations, experiencing Anglican worship in a new cultural context, and enjoying the country's natural and cultural beauty on hikes and on horseback.

The MIDDLE SCHOOL will be going to New Orleans (May 25-May 29) to do community service, enjoy cajun cultural immersion and have fun on the bayou! Let the good times roll!

Both trips will be done through Wondervoyage Missions (wondervoyage.com), a worldwide service learning and pilgrimage organization that Fr. Nate has worked with for over a decade. The Upper School trip to Dominican Republic will be from May 26-June 1. It will earn 15-20 community service hours and will cost $1200 for food, lodging and activities, and around $600 for airfare.

2015 Summer Trip to Prussia, Bohemia and Bavaria, June 15-23


History teachers Cristina Rowan and Jonathan Wagshul would like to invite TMI students and parents to join them on a trip to Germany and the Czech Republic in June 2015. The historic lands of Prussia, Bohemia, and Bavaria have witnessed major events in European history, such as WWII, the Holocaust, the Cold War and the reunification of Germany. By visiting historical landmarks such as the Brandenburg Gate and Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin, the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial outside Munich and the Prague Ghetto, students will learn invaluable lessons about the rise of Nazism and Communism, and the experience of ordinary people during war and dictatorship. In addition to professional guided tours, participants will experience authentic cuisine, fine art, and local attractions.

For more information, contact Cristina Rowan c.rowan@tmi-sa.org (210) 564-6213 or Jonathan Wagshul j.wagshul@tmi-sa.org (210) 564-6136.
