2019 - 2020 CCS Field Trips

One of the benefits of a small school setting, and one of our goals as a classical Christian school is to help our students learn both in and out of the traditional classroom setting.  Below is a listing of our planned field trips for the upcoming year, along with their estimated cost and the month of the trip if available.  Our staff have worked hard to plan out our trips for the upcoming year so that parents can either pay for these trips in advance, or so that you can spread the cost out over the course of the year by incorporating the cost to your monthly FACTS payment.  Please review the planned trips below and complete the form at the bottom of this page.  If you have any questions please contact your academic dean, JillBarton@EducatingForLife.com (Grades K-5) or JohnNiehls@EducatingForLife.com (Grades 6-12).  Thank you!
