Certainly, travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living. - Miriam Beard

We value the life lessons and experiences that students gain from time outside the classroom. This is especially reflected in our emphasis on out of town travels for sports, field trips, and our annual national parks trip. Traveling increases knowledge and widens perspective. Viewing new places and unusual terrain is fantastic for the mind. Traveling helps people become ready to embrace change and develop a natural ability to overcome life’s challenges.
