At The Geneva School, field trips are not simply “perks” intended to give students a break or to provide opportunities for off-campus recreation. Rather, they are a fundamental part of our integrated curriculum. While students do read and learn about history, science, and geography in the classroom, we believe that a full-orbed education should require students to see, hear, touch, taste, and smell the world around them. Field trips are an excellent way to appeal to all five senses, an experiential learning opportunity that will contribute all the more substantively to their education.
Students in the grammar school participate in many field trips and similar in-house events that are organized by the teachers. In fifth and sixth grades the students have the opportunity to participate in overnight field trips. Every spring, the fifth grade travels to Williamsburg, VA for a week, and the sixth grade has a retreat at Lake Yale near Eustis, FL.
