School Trip Program
The Staten Island Academy School Trip Program is a school-wide itinerary of trips for students and teachers.
These off-campus field trips are designed as age-appropriate educational journeys that begin close to the Academy campus in the earliest years of learning and take students as far as Europe and South America in their late teens. The Academy believes that all students -- no matter their age -- should become active citizens of Staten Island, New York City, the country, and the world.
Upper School (Grades 9-12)
Students in all four Middle School grades have overnight trips that are curriculum-based. Grade 5 students travel to Philadelphia, PA, to study the nation's birth. Grade 6 students visit Boston, MA; Grade 7 students travel to Washington, DC, to study American government and history. Grade 8 students attend team-building workshops at Nature’s Classroom in Connecticut. All of these experiences help develop bonds among students and prepare them both for the travel experience in Grade 9 to London, as well as serving as a preparation for leaving home when they go away to college.
In the Lower School, school trips vary year-to-year based on each grade’s respective unit of study. The Lower School takes advantage of the expansive variety of museums and historical landmarks that New York City offers. These excursions complement and enrich the classroom curriculum.
