Upper School Field Studies
Field trips are a very important part of a child’s educational experience. They provide the valuable opportunity to make a connection between the classroom content and the real world. A variety of field studies are planned to support the junior high curriculum, which range from one-day on-site studies to a multi-day tour of our nation’s capital city, Washington, D.C.
An essential part of our curriculum is getting students out of the classroom and into the real world to see things first hand. Students at all levels are involved in the field trips. At the high school level, off-site field trips are planned by individual teachers, academic departments, and the college counseling office. In addition, the Guidance Counselors plan an all day retreat for students in grades 9 – 12 once per semester focusing on the life skills needed as students prepare for the college application process and beyond.
Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy also sponsors trips to international locations such as the Galapagos Islands, Ireland, England, Germany, Austria, and more! International field studies, led by HT teachers as well as local college professors, give students the opportunity to visit literary and historic sites and learn about other cultures.
