St. Mark’s mission is to educate “the whole boy.” To that end, travel opportunities are offered to the boys at various stages in their St. Mark’s experience. Lower School and Middle School boys who participate in the Choir program can go to England to sing in historic cathedrals. Rising 4th graders are offered the opportunity to explore Yellowstone National Park and the Grand Tetons. Middle and Upper Schoolers can take part in various language programs during the summer that will take them to Spain, Japan, Chile, or Mexico. All these programs are intended to expand the student's knowledge of himself and his world.
The biennial international Choir Tour is a longstanding tradition at St. Mark's. Since 1986, students have traveled all across the globe to perform with other boys and children's choirs in some of the most impressive venues in the world. Most recently, in the summer of 2015, the St. Mark's Choir traveled up the East Coast and into Canada, performing at Arlington National Cemetery, Washington National Cathedral, the United Nations Headquarters, and Montreal's Christ Church Cathedral. In between concerts, students received guided tours of the Library of Congress and the U.S. Capitol, visited the Statue of Liberty and 9/11 Memorial, and took in a New York Mets game.
