International Opportunities

Buffalo Academy of the Sacred Heart offers international trips to students every summer. This opportunity to explore new cultures and communities enriches students beyond the classroom and helps develop a global perspective.

These optional trips are presented two years prior to departure which gives students and families time to plan finances. Travel arrangements are made with international student travel companies with faculty and staff as chaperones.

Past trips include the British Isles, Italy, Costa Rica, Spain, Australia and New Zealand. The 2019 trip will include Budapest and Prague.

In keeping with our Franciscan mission of serving others, Sacred Heart also sponsors service trips where students are immersed in cultures working alongside locals on projects ranging from Christian ministry and education to ecological community projects. Current trips travel to the Dominican Republic and Zambia.

Sacred Heart also participates in the Dortmund Student Exchange Program and each year hosts students from Dortmund, Germany. Students live with SHA families and participate in school life for the fall semester.
