American Academy Field Trips

Our First Friday of the Month (FFOTM) Field Trip program is designed to provide an exciting and educational experience for students of all ages. Each month, we offer a carefully planned and curated field trip to a unique destination, giving our students the opportunity to explore and learn about different places, cultures, and topics.

All field trips are led by knowledgeable and experienced guides who will provide insight and context to enhance the experience. We aim to provide an amazing opportunity for children to experience education beyond the classroom, explore the world around them, apply their learning in a real-world way, and for families to get to know one another.
