Whitman Academy is located in Amman, Jordan: a country with vast open areas to explore. The capital city is home to 2.5 million of the total 5.86 million population. The people of Jordan are predominately Muslim, but Christian churches operate freely throughout the country.


Although Jordan is primarily a desert, it does get cold and rainy during the winter months. Be sure to bring warm clothes, including a winter coat,  rain boots and layers of clothing. The spring and fall are characterised by warm days and cool nights with little precipitation. The summer months are very warm.
