St. Paul Lutheran School’s philosophy of learning outside the classroom encourages students in many grades to experience varied field trips. These are enriching and bring to life the studies the students have experienced during the school year. Overnight trips are sponsored for fourth, seventh, and eighth grade students.
The fourth grade studies Florida history throughout the year. There’s no better way to observe and experience the rich history of Florida than by visiting St. Augustine. The students enjoy this overnight trip each spring.
The seventh grade experiences spiritual growth and physical challenges through a five day trip to Camp Lutherock in North Carolina. The students take part in rock climbing, caving, hiking, and group interaction courses, all tying in with God’s Word, our faith life, and learning to work together as the Body of Christ.
The eighth grade social studies emphasize civics and American government. As a culmination, the classes travel to Washington, D.C. to witness government in action. Besides seeing Congress and Supreme Court Buildings, major museums are visited as well as Arlington National Cemetery, Museum of the Bible, Mount Vernon, and various monuments. This off campus learning is described as historical, informational, educational, and fun.
All grades 1st – 8th incorporate educational trips into the curriculum.
