HDET is composed of teachers and leaders from American Heritage School who have one goal: To develop Christian character through travel. This means creating experiences that expose students to diverse cultures, history-changing events, and spirit-rich excursions that build gratitude, perspective, empathy, and hope. As a result, students will grow in their love of God and love of humankind (their neighbor).

The HDET team has decades of experience as teachers and has traveled hundreds of thousands of miles to dozens of countries around the world. Though not officially associated with American Heritage School, the HDET team believes in and works to support the values and mission of AHS.
