We plan great trips!
Most students begin attending trips in 10th grade. Not all students attend every trip, but we encourage every student to attend at least one trip while they are in high school. Financial aid is available for all trips.
This year, due to Covid-19, we are planning local and domestic trips to places such as Flushing, Queens; Ellis Island; and the West coast!
