In High School, students develop their awareness and appreciation for the world beyond the classroom.
Class Trips

At the beginning of 9th grade, students travel to Camp Cho Yeh for a freshman retreat, which includes team building and self reflection activities.

In addition to the freshman retreat, students travel to Big Bend National Park, for a physically challenging adventure of wilderness living—including a nine-mile hike to the top of Emory Peak, personal discovery activities, and a friendship circle.

10th grade students go on a service-focused, cultural, and educational trip—either to Puerto Rico or the Grand Canyon. This year, students will travel to an Indian Reservation to learn about their culture and customs. The students will also explore the Grand Canyon National Park, Zion National Park, and more.

11th grade students travel to the Teton Science School, where they learn about the fire and glacier ecology, art, and other ecology while also hiking and team building.  On this trip, students work on their Group 4 International Baccalaureate projects through their field research.

Students develop an awareness, appreciation, and stewardship around local and global places. The goal is for students to gain a greater sense of self, work constructively with others, take initiative, and build scientific literacy to inform personal decisions around social, economic, and ecological systems of place. 

Seniors finish the year in a culminating journey to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, where they reflect upon their time at The Village School and enjoy their last moments before graduating.
