Every other year our middle school students have the opportunity to go to Washington DC and New York! In the spring, we take a week-long tour of our nation’s capital, learning all about the rich Christian heritage on which our country is founded. This is a chock-full, fast-paced trip. We visit all the memorials, such as the Korean War, Vietnam War, and WWII War Memorials; Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, and the Washington Monument. We tour the Smithsonian Museums and see the Ford’s Theatre where President Lincoln was assassinated, as well as the Peterson House where he was treated prior to passing. We also visit Arlington National Cemetery and see the Tombs of the Unknowns. We wrap up the trip by visiting New York City and attending a Broadway show as well as visiting the 9/11 memorial. This is an amazing experience that creates life-long memories for our middle school students, as well as a deeper appreciation for the Christian heritage and sacrifices of our nation’s forefathers.
The Middle School Trip to Washington D.C., Colonial Williamsburg & New York is offered once every two years (next trip: March/April 2020). This is an optional week long history trip during Spring Break. Costs vary year to year for students and parents wishing to participate in this adventure. Chaperones are provided by the school and are assigned small student groups. For more information please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
