About Prodigy

At Prodigy Student Travel, our goal is simple: to provide a safe tour and an educational experience for students, all at a great value for schools and parents. We believe travel is one of the best ways to teach students that anything – anything – is possible! Whether taking a tour of The White House, standing in awe of the sentinels at Arlington National Cemetery, seeing the spectacle of Times Square, or taking in the majesty of the Statue of Liberty, seeing is believing. Prodigy Student Travel helps open your students' eyes—and their minds to a world of possibilities.
