Signature Trips & Intersession

SSFS students learn about the world by being in the world. Each Lower School grade goes on field trips, and overnight trips begin in fourth grade. Middle School signature trips include a sixth grade environmental science and history overnight trip to St. George's Island in the Chesapeake Bay, a seventh grade trip to Gettysburg, and an eighth grade trip to Assateague Island. Middle School students also have the option of summer language immersion trips to France and Spain, as well as domestic service learning trips.

In the ninth grade, students participate in a camping trip prior to the start of school. In additional to the ninth grade camping trip, Upper Schoolers have educational and service-learning trip options every spring through our intersession program. Recent Intersession trips have included hiking in Death Valley; exploring in the Amazon; helping to rebuild homes in West Virginia; and cultural trips to England, Ireland, and Italy. During the summer, some students take part in service trips in the U.S. or abroad.
