Middle Schoolers Travel the U.S.

The eighth grade traveled to Washington, D.C., for a four-day experience to focus on the technological, historical, and cultural spirit of the United States. Students visited the Arlington National Cemetery, White House, Capitol Building, Supreme Court Building, monuments, museums, and much more. 

Seventh-grade students had an incredible four-day exploration of Cleveland. The day trips extended their focus on a "sense of place" in World Geography class. Boys learned about and experienced Cleveland through the lenses of entrepreneurism & adaptive reuse, immigration & heritage, environment, and arts & culture. They visited W. 78th Street Studios, Little Italy, CLIMB Cleveland, and the West Side Market, and enjoyed a service project with Cleveland Metroparks.

As part of their American history study, sixth graders visited Dearborn, Michigan, to step back in time and see firsthand how innovation and inventions have shaped our world today. They explored Edison’s lab and the Wright brothers’ workshop at Greenfield Village, toured the Henry Ford Museum, and saw an active assembly line of the Ford F150.

Fifth-grade teachers led the boys on a new and exciting spring trip to Valley Forge National Historical Park and Philadelphia. They walked in George Washington's footsteps, visited historic sites, enjoyed a Phillies baseball game, and explored museums there.
