Destination CE 2017

March 14-17, 2017

Grab your suitcase and sunscreen! This isn't your typical CE!

Palm trees in the breeze ... the sound of ocean waves ... the sand between your toes. Can't you just picture yourself in the Caribbean right now? That picture can become reality when you attend Destination CE on St. Thomas Island in the Caribbean!

Why attend Destination CE?

Since you have to take CE, why not take it at the beach?

You can earn 12 hours of 2017-18 CE credits while breaking away from the winter blues. Courses take place in the mornings, leaving your afternoons available for exploring St. Thomas island and all it has to offer, including shopping, snorkeling, historic sightseeing, fine dining or anything else you might like! It's your vacation! 

About St. Thomas 

St. Thomas is one of the three main islands in the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI), located in the Caribbean, and is also home to the USVI capital, Charlotte Amalie. St. Thomas offers a host of opportunities and activities to make your 2017 vacation the trip of a lifetime! Water activities like snorkeling, kayaking and strolling the beach are always available, and St. Thomas is also rich with lots of history. 

Attractions unique to St. Thomas include:

  • 99 Steps: You can climb these steps that lead to Blackbeard's Castle. Originally built in the 1700s with bricks transported by ship from Denmark, local legend says a pirate used the steps to access his lookout.
  • Fort Christian: Built in the 1600s, this fort is the oldest structure on the island, and it served as a point of defense for the Dano-Norwegian rule of the island, which ended in the early 1900s.
  • St. Thomas Synagogue: The second-oldest synagogue in the U.S., built in 1796, is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This synagogue is one of five in the world that includes sand floors, consistent with the Inquisition-era custom of using sand to muffle forbidden prayer. Open to visitors of all religions!
