MENUMENU

Capstone Trip

Learn more about our capstone trip to Italy!

 

“As a faculty chaperone, this enchantment of the student’s education is the most rewarding part of the trip, specifically seeing how excited they get when they see and experience things they’ve studied throughout their time at Westminster Academy.”

Adam Woods

Westminster History & Rhetoric Teacher

About the Capstone Trip

On the Capstone Trip seniors have the opportunity to take their education beyond the classroom. During this 10 day trip to Italy, students visit Rome, Orvieto, Assisi, Siena, and Florence to learn about 2000 years of history, and Christianity’s impact upon it, while standing in the places where it was made. By immersing our students into a culture that is not their own, we hope to cultivate the love of learning that Westminster strives to teach. This trip also gives our students the chance to make concrete conections with all that they’ve learned throughout their time in school. By bringing students to the places where history was made, we hope our students recognize the power and sovereignty of our God across the world.

Since we believe that this trip is an important part of the Westminster Experience, sarting this year, the cost of the trip will be covered in tuition. This cost includes…

  • Round-trip airfare
  • Transportation
  • Hotel acommidations
  • Entrance Fees
  • Guides
  • Breakfast
  • 3/4’s of dinners
