Field Trips

Field Trips

CCS values experiential learning and the ability to explore nature, science, history, art and business in Eastern North Carolina. Our goal is to create a robust learning experience where students can take what they are learning in the classroom and relate it to the real world. We want our students to be self-guided, life-long learners. With that in mind, it is important for them to be able to build links between what is in a textbook and the world around them. Below are examples of field trips taken for various grade levels.
