Trips

Life Academy offers a wide range of trips to offer enhanced educational experiences outside of the classroom in a number of contexts.

College Trips enable students to visit a wide range of institutions of higher learning, including Ivy League universities, private universities, state universities (SUNY), and city universities (CUNY schools).  Students are given campus tours as well as the opportunity to ask any questions they may have about the school. 

Broadway Trips expose students to live performance as well as famous works of musical theater.  

Historical and Cultural Trips include museum visits and historical walking tours of cities, and are generally meant to enhance content in core curriculum.

Recreational Trips give students the opportunity to decompress from rigorous academic studies and interact with their friends and teachers in a more casual setting.
