Why Field Trips?

When I was a kid, I lived for school field trips. Going to the zoo, going to the Scholastic Books factory (Ohio), going to White Sands (New Mexico) were some of the more memorable trips. Educators now know that field trips play an important role in reaching the interest of children as well as putting into context what is being taught in the classroom.

Field Trips Are Important!

Happily homeschooling parents can fit many many more field trips into their child's education. Asbury Academy offers monthly (and sometimes more) trips for parents and children. Below are just a few photos to show you what we do in a year.
