Scholastic Institutions

Schools from kindergarten to universities, can use our products to help protect their students and faculty.

K-12 schools – from primary and elementary to middle and high schools – should consider the inherit risks of having many active young people interacting together. Colleges and Universities face different challenges through travel and study abroad programs.

Why should you consider coverage?

At school, students may possibly experience sprained ankles, broken bones, or other injuries from gym class or playing on the playground. Away from school, students may be subjected to injuries as a result of an accident en route to or on their way home from school or after school activities. Study abroad students may also encounter new experiences that may put them at risk. Having the right insurance coverage may help.

What types of study abroad programs are eligible?

Educational institutions who are eligible for coverage may include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Specialized schools, such as Montessori and Waldorf schools
  • Primary and elementary schools
  • High schools and high school exchange programs
  • Parochial and church-affiliated schools
  • Preparatory, charter and private schools
  • University sponsored programs
  • Private study abroad programs
  • Service learning programs

Coverage Options for Scholastic programs

Arch Insurance works with organizations to provide coverage options that are designed to help protect both the institution and its students and faculty. We offer a variety of insurance options, including:

Study Abroad Coverage

Study abroad trips can be costly, and if it is canceled or cut short, you may lose out on the costs you paid to travel. With trip cancellation coverage, you may be able to recoup those funds if it is canceled for a covered reason, and travel medical insurance can help protect in the event of an emergency when away from home.

Student Accident

Student accident insurance helps cover medical costs associated with injuries, or even death, which could result from participating in a school activity. Coverage can be purchased for a whole year or semester, or for a single event such as a short-term trip. Coverage can also be offered to a school, a group, or on an individual student basis.
