COURSES FILL UP QUICKLY, SO REGISTER EARLY!
We are excited to bring our Au Pair Weekend program to the great state of Texas! San Antonio, the state’s first chartered settlement, is a city chock full of history and diversity. Unique sites like The Alamo and Missions National Historical Park allow you to step back in time, while a stroll down the River Walk gives you a sense of the city’s urban allure. Students will also have the unique opportunity to be immersed in Texas’s famous “cowboy culture” in Bandera, the “Cowboy Capital of the World!” Students will be guests at the Silver Spur Guest Ranch, one of the finest dude ranches in Texas Hill Country. Take a step with us onto the Texas Frontier for an experience you’ll never forget!
