ACIS Makes Planning Easy

Planning Trips Made Easy

Planning a trip for your students may seem like a daunting task, but at ACIS, we work our magic to make planning as straightforward as possible. That way you can focus on just preparing your students for an amazing adventure.

It’s really as easy as six simple steps. But for all the details and loads of recruiting tools, login to My Account and visit the Group Leader Academy.

Step 1. Pick a Trip

Start by browsing our 200+ trip options for an adventure that excites you and reflects your vision, and be sure to meet your ACIS Program Consultant. They’ll listen to your interests, educational goals and concerns to help you choose or customize the ideal trip. Call us at 800-888-ACIS or email info@acis.com and to get connected with one of our U.S.-based Program Consultants.

Step 2: Talk to the school board

ACIS’ reputation makes it easy to win school board approval. Contact us, and we’ll help you earn the go-ahead by sending a School Board Packet with extensive materials and information about ACIS and the educational value of our trips.

Step 3: Meet with the students and parents

Time to recruit participants! At an evening meeting for students and parents, explain the power of educational travel and address their questions and concerns. We’ll provide a customized PowerPoint presentation and video to help structure the meeting and generate excitement. Be sure to have ACIS Registration Booklets on hand so parents and students can register right away! Often, ACIS staff and local representatives can also be made available for your meetings.
