Educational Field Trips + Travel

We believe that students benefit immensely from educational field trips and travel. Whether it's learning about Marine Science at UT Marine Science Institute, aeronautics at NASA Mission Control, or experiencing the natural world  in beautiful Big Bend National Park, these trips provide our students with unique educational opportunities and enrich their lives forever.

We also enjoy exploring local opportunities in the Central Texas area such as the Bob Bullock Museum, Blanton Museum, Johnson City Science Mill, Canyon Lake Gorge, Kincherff Guitar Marking Studio, WImberley Valley Watershed, Jacob's Well, Pedernales Falls, San Antonio Missions and more. We love to explore!
