Student Travel  

Field trips are an important part of a Trinity Christian School education. Students are given numerous educational experiences outside of the classroom. Local, single-day field trips include concerts, plays, the Wildlife Education Center, the GSU Museum, Tybee Island, Savannah, Hilton Head Island, and many other locations. For older students there are also overnight field trips, including the following:

Charleston (5th grade: Sleeping aboard the USS Yorktown corresponds to the students’ study of World War II. Students also visit the Charleston Aquarium or Fort Sumter. 

Space Camp (6th grade): Students travel to Kennedy Space Center in Florida for an overnight experience at Space Camp that goes along with their study of astronomy. 

Atlanta (8th grade): Georgia History students travel to our state’s capital, where they tour the Coca-Cola Museum, the Georgia Aquarium, the CNN Studios, and the state capitol building.

Williamsburg/Washington D.C. (10th grade): U.S. History I students visit this historic Virginia city, as well as the first English colony in the New World (Jamestown) and Yorktown, site of a major revolutionary war battle. The trip also includes several days in Washington D.C., where they tour the capitol building, the museums of the Smithsonian, the monuments and memorials, Arlington Cemetery, the National Cathedral, and the Holocaust Museum. 

Europe (11th or 12th grade): The culminating experience is a 2-week Europe trip that occurs every two years. The last few trips have included the nations of Italy, France, England, and Scotland. For a more extensive explanation of our Europe trip, please read our Europe Trip Rationale.
