Each winter the seventh-grade class spends three days and two nights at Nature’s Classroom in Charlton, Mass., with a focus on winter ecology. As a part of their environmental education, students look at ways in which organisms have adapted to the harsh conditions of a New England winter.
A highlight of students’ eighth grade year is the trip to Quebec City where they enjoy Winter Carnival. Cultural experiences abound, including a tour of Quebec City, dining on regional cuisine, and braving the cold for a fun night of tubing, making it an unforgettable adventure!
Junior Class Trip to Washington, D.C.
As a culminating experience to their year of studying American history and literature, juniors travel as a class to Washington, D.C. for four days. Activities may include a walking tour of the Mall’s monuments and museums, an excursion to Mount Vernon, and viewing of the Supreme Court, the Capitol, and other national landmarks.
