Historical Secondary Trips
Our seventh grade New York State history class is given the opportunity to take a day trip to Albany to see our state capital. They tour the capitol building and gain a grander sense of our heritage as New Yorkers. Many years they are even able to meet with one of our state representatives.
Every year our eighth grade American history class is given the opportunity to take a two-day trip to see our nation’s capital. They are able to see firsthand what they have been learning about in American history class, which makes history come alive. From monuments to museums, they are able to experience conclusive evidence that America was founded and has flourished by the faith that our founding fathers had in God.
Our eleventh grade U.S. history class takes a day trip each fall to Philadelphia, the site of so much of our nation’s early history. From the Liberty Bell to Independence Hall, they broaden their understanding of U.S. history and are reminded of the sacrifices that were made by our founding fathers to guarantee protection for our God-given liberties.
