Field Trips

Before you go, here's what you should know about field trips

Field Trips from Jamestown to Scotland!

In conjunction with the curriculum in various classes, FCPS students travel locally to the White House, U.S. Capitol, area monuments, National Mall, Newseum, and Smithsonian museums, as well as to Jamestown, Yorktown, and Philadelphia. As part of their study of the arts and marketing, some students visit New York City; others travel over school breaks to Central or South America, Europe, and Asia.

Field trips enrich the study of classroom instruction, enabling students to supplement their studies with an up-close look at locations, artifacts, documents, and memorials. These trips offer students the opportunity to better relate to the world around them by learning more about it.

School Board Regulation 5790 outlines the various field trip types:

  • Instructional - Extend classroom instructional program, contribute to accomplishment of course objectives.
  • Activity - Academic and athletic teams, performing groups.
