“It is our responsibility to prepare our students for their world.”

Comprehensive Programming

The AI Field Study is for teachers, administrators, and board members that seek to advance their own growth while ultimately enhancing student achievement and global perspectives in a community.

Participants receive fully inclusive cultural preparation and training seminars leading up to the tour. Preparatory learning allows each participant to deepen understanding and awareness of societal expectations, cultural practices, and knowledge of the educational system. In turn, the educator can focus on their personal experience while abroad rather than being overwhelmed with the unfamiliarity of a society’s culture and practices.

Site visits to campuses, classrooms, and seminars allow participants to connect commonalities to colleagues around the world, identify relevance in the field, and tour learning environments to apply greater understanding.


The ACES International team is a dedicated group of educators dedicated to create global opportunities that help bring learning communities together. We foster the development of understanding and mutual respect within communities by promoting the exchange of ideas and experiences. We help to give students, educators, and aspiring professionals from across the world skills that make them active and responsible global citizens.

The AI Field Study is successful because we:

  • offer a time-tested itinerary with reliable resources and professional network of committed educators;
  • design an experience that prioritizes safety and well-being first;
  • assemble the greatest resources in our partnered countries and the most committed, experienced, and passionate staff in the field;
  • work to ensure that each opportunity and experience informs perspective and expands the horizons of all stakeholders.


The 2018 AI Field Study

will highlight an all-inclusive itinerary that exposes participants to the modern and historical culture of China and Thailand.

Customized for the educator, participants will experience the arts, the cuisine, the people, and the magnitude of China and Thailand in an all-encompassing cultural itinerary. We personalize this with up-close and personal discussions with artists, innovators, city planners, and educational leaders; strolls through the back streets of family neighborhoods, art galleries, and art districts; school site visits; on-your-own time to explore, and historian guided tours.

“I truly enjoyed the field study and found it to have had the perfect balance of educational, social, and cultural experiences.”
