It really is about joy in the journey at Academy at the Lakes – even if that journey sometimes takes students thousands of miles away from campus.
The Florida Keys; the Virginia mountains; South America; Europe; New York City; Boston; San Francisco; Nashville: these are just some of the places Academy students have visited through the years.
These “Extended Trip” opportunities are an Academy tradition for Grades 5 through 12, and the trips give students the chance to learn, face challenges, and have fun outside of a traditional classroom setting.
