Jamie Boudreaux, a sophomore at Ascension Catholic High School will attend The Cambridge College Programme for three weeks in Cambridge, England.

The Programme, which was founded 19 years ago, was developed to give American teenagers the opportunity to experience the sights and culture of England through coursed taught by British lecturers associated with the University of Cambridge or renown in their field, and day trip to many places in England.

Boudreaux will stay in one of several University colleges, along with other scholars of the same age and interests and be supervised by a University student.

Students chose two coursed and all scholars take a third course, entitled "British Cultural History: Faith and Power, Learning and Leisure," which will consist of lectures on various subjects concerning Britian and field trips to such places as Ely Cathedral, Stonehenge, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Warwick Castle, Bath, the Tower of London, the British Museum and Buckingham Palace.

Scholars will also see two plays in London's West End and participate in activities which include, sports, plays, movies, theme parties and more.

Boudreaux will also travel by private coach and ferry over the English Channel to Paris where she will spend a week touring the Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Versailles, Monet's Garden, Notre Dame and Montmartre.

Boudreaux is the daughter of David and Robbin Boudreaux.
