Field Experiences

Students have many field experiences throughout the school year. The educational experiences range from visiting job sites and universities to going to camp for the day.

During the fall trimester all classes participate in an outdoor adventure. Freshmen go to Camp Kon-O-Kwee, sophomores to Laurel Caverns, juniors to Ohio Pyle to hike, bike, and/or raft and seniors go on an overnight trip to the Teen Quest camping site.

A special event is planned for each class during the spring. The freshmen trip is to Presque Isle and is a one-day event. Sophomores go to Washington D.C. for three days, and Juniors go to Niagara Falls for three days.

Juniors can also participate in a trip to Costa Rica. This trip is part of a collaboration between the Social Studies and World Languages departments. It is a 10- day trip and students are selected according to criteria developed by the two departments.

Dances and field experiences/field trips often require that the student pay part or all of the entry fee and/or transportation costs. Students are encouraged to participate in fundraisers in order to build the balances in their student accounts. Many students use their accounts to pay for all of the events during the course of the year.

Students under suspension are also suspended from participation in all activities as participants and as spectators on the dates of the suspension, including weekends, breaks, and holidays that fall within the suspension.
